Microsoft Exchange Connection

You use the Microsoft Exchange Connection Setup program to install and configure the Microsoft Exchange Connection gateway. You can configure and modify the gateway configuration, connect times, accounts, and recipients by logging on as network manager and running MS Mail.

Messages from Microsoft Exchange Server to MS Mail (AppleTalk) are converted to text by the connector interchange and then placed in the Microsoft Mail Connector postoffice's connection store PCTOMAC directory by the Connector (AppleTalk) MTA. They are retrieved from this directory by the Microsoft Exchange Connection and delivered to the correct recipient (or forwarded to the correct server) at the scheduled connection time. Messages from MS Mail (AppleTalk) to Microsoft Exchange Server recipients are placed in the connection store's MACTOPC directory, where they are converted and transferred by the Microsoft Mail Connector.
