You probably didn't mean to say that OfficeVision is a POP server—it's not.
The POP server on the 400 can be accessed just fine by Eudora, Netscape, etc.

Are your 400s connected to the Internet directly or through a router? If
the latter, maybe put in some kind of packet filter that redirects SMTP to
your new mail server(s). Or this may be a function of a firewall or proxy

Just a thought: POP configuration is done in the system directory, not user
