MS Mail Recipient Addresses

An MS Mail address consists of a display name (up to 55 alphanumeric characters) and the following required information.

Attribute description Contents
Network name 1 through 10 alphanumeric characters.
Postoffice name 1 through 10 alphanumeric characters.
Mailbox name 1 through 10 alphanumeric characters.

The following is an example of an MS Mail address:


The address type MS and the forward slash (/) delimiter between each address attribute are entered automatically when you use the MS Mail template. No distinction is made between lowercase and uppercase characters. To define an address for a Microsoft Mail for AppleTalk Networks (also known as Quarterdeck Mail) recipient, edit the address after it has been saved, and change the address type to MSA.

Note   Some messaging systems connected to MS Mail postoffices or servers cannot correctly handle network, postoffice, or mailbox names longer than eight characters. When connecting to such systems, continue to use the naming convention compatible with message transfer to these systems.
