IGNITe/400 Mailing List Archive Entry
Bob,

Thank you very much for your help. Most of the problems we had here were
with DNS configuration. Nevertheless, we have asked our ISP to provide us
with the DNS service (It frees us an IP address, headaches, and they will do
it for free!)

Thanks again,

>>It is pretty straight forward. POP3 uses the system directory (wrkdire).
>>You must set the Mail Service Level to 2 - System Mail store, and
Preferred

>>The name that you want your user to be known by via email is entered in
the

>>Your domain name goes in the SMTP domain field (i.e. mycompany.com).
