Connecting MS Mail (AppleTalk) and Microsoft Exchange Server Sites
You can connect an MS Mail (AppleTalk) site with a Microsoft Exchange Server site by using the Microsoft Mail Connector and Microsoft Exchange Connection, as shown in the following illustration:
To create this type of connection, you need to:
- Set up the Microsoft Mail Connector on a Windows NT file system (NTFS) volume on the Microsoft Exchange Server computer and then make the connector postoffice Macintosh-accessible.
- Set up the Microsoft Exchange Connection on the MS Mail (AppleTalk) gateway server.
- Configure the Microsoft Mail Connector and Microsoft Exchange Connection to route messages between systems.
- Set up the gateway access component on each indirect MS Mail (AppleTalk) server that you want to communicate with Microsoft Exchange Server.
- Add the e-mail address of each indirect MS Mail (AppleTalk) server to the Microsoft Mail Connector address space, to enable messages for indirect servers to be sent from the Microsoft Exchange Server site.
After a connection is made between the two systems, you can use directory synchronization to ensure that new message routing information is shared between MS Mail (AppleTalk) servers and Microsoft Exchange Server computers.
