Small Business Server 2003 users that use the POP3  Connector Manager and are affected by that annoying 15 minutes download interval, finally there is hope, here is a registry tweak to drop the interval from 15 minutes to 5 minutes;

FIRST. Take a backup of your registry

1. Open Regedit
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Micro­ soft/SmallBusinessServer/Network/P­OP3 Connector
3. Create a new “DWORD value” and type “ScheduleAccelerator” as the entry name
4. Select the DWORD and on the edit menu click modify, in the value box, type 3 and ensure the Decimal Radio button is clicked on the right.

(To determine the polling interval, the value that is configured on the “Scheduling” tab in the GUI is divided by the value that you type for the ScheduleAccelerator entry, example, if a 15 minute interval is specified in the GUI and you set the value of the ScheduleAccelerator entry to 3, the connector will poll ever five minutes, If you make it too short there can be problems with the POP3 connector starting a download before the previous download has started, it seems to work well with 5minutes)

5. Exit Regedit

After typing http://Server-name/exchange
You get the login box, after entering the correct user info you get the dreaded
HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable, after searching the web for months and tried almost all available tutorials I finally found the solution. This problem (the scenario I experienced) it relates to permissions in the windows registry. Follow the steps below to get OWA working as normal.

1. Open regedit from the command prompt, ensure you take a backup of your current registry configuration. To export, on the file menu in registry editor click export  and choose save destination

2. Locate and Right Click HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT hive and select Permissions

3. Click the Advanced button on the Permissions dialog box

4. Highlight CREATOR OWNER – make sure this is the user selected

5. Tick the box for Replace permission entries on all child objects

6. Click OK twice

7. Its best to restart the server, but if you are anxious just restart all exchange services

8. Finally Test
