Post Office

Use the Post Office property page to configure the network connection to the cc:Mail post office that the connector will communicate with directly. In the Post Office property page, you can:

Getting to the Post Office property page

  1. In the Administrator window, choose the site where the connector is installed, and then choose Connections.
  2. Double-click Connector for cc:Mail.
  3. Select the Post Office tab.

Assigning an Administrator's Mailbox

Use the Post Office property page to assign an administrator's mailbox to receive messages that cannot be converted by the connector.

Tip   You can create a mailbox called cc:Mail administrator or a distribution list to receive delivery messages.

  1. Select the Post Office tab.
  2. Choose Change.
  3. Select a recipient for the administrator's mailbox.

Option Description
Show Names from the Select the global address list or a container.
Type Name or Select from List Type a name or select one from the list.
Properties Display the properties for the mailbox.
Find Search for a name based on a specific set of criteria.

Specifying the Connected cc:Mail Post Office

Use the Post Office property page to specify the cc:Mail post office the connector will communicate with.

Note   Before you can connect to a NetWare server, your Windows NT Server must be running the Gateway Services for NetWare.

When typing a network path to a NetWare server, use the uniform naming convention (UNC) format (\\servername\sharename\path for a Windows NT Server or \\servername\volumename\path for a NetWare server). For example, a cc:Mail post office located on a NetWare server with server name SERVER1, volume name Sys, and directory name Ccdata would require the network path \\Server1\Sys\Ccdata.
  1. Select the Post Office tab.
  2. Under cc:Mail post office, type the name, path, and password for the cc:Mail post office you are connecting to.

Option Description
Name Type the name of the cc:Mail post office (up to 256 characters).
Password Type the password for the cc:Mail post office (up to 10 characters).
Path Type the network path to the cc:Mail post office data directory in UNC format. The connector's service account must have read and write permissions for this destination.

Specifying Versions of Import/Export

You must specify the versions of cc:Mail Import and Export that you will be using with the connector. The cc:Mail Import.exe and Export.exe files are necessary for message transfer between the connector and a cc:Mail post office. To determine the version of the Import and Export programs that you are using, type the program name followed by /? at the command prompt.

Note   If you are using Import/Export 6.0, you must copy \Ccdata\Ccadmin\Ie.ri to the directory where Import.exe and Export.exe are located.

  1. Select the Post Office tab.
  2. Under Import/Export version, select the version of Import/Export that you are using.

Specifying a Post Office Language

Selecting a language determines the language code page used for text sent to and from the connector. A code page is an ordering or encoding of a standard set of characters within a specific locale. Encoding provides a consistent way for messaging systems to exchange and process data. The code page also determines the language the connector uses for sending text strings, such as status messages, to cc:Mail.

Note   You may experience language-specific conversion problems when the Post office language setting is configured for a language that is different from the language specified in the Windows NT Server Regional Settings application in Control Panel.

  1. Select the Post Office tab.
  2. Under Post office language, select a language.

Configuring Other Post Office Options

Use the Post Office property page to enable message tracking for the connector. Inbound and outbound messages through the connector are reported as message tracking events and can be viewed from the Microsoft Exchange Server Message Tracking Center. When a message is successfully imported from Microsoft Exchange Server into a cc:Mail post office, the action is logged. Similarly, an action is logged when a message has been received by Microsoft Exchange Server from the connector.

Many cc:Mail systems use Lotus cc:Mail Automatic Directory Exchange (ADE) to propagate the contents of an established cc:Mail post office directory to any number of other cc:Mail post offices. The Connector for cc:Mail does not use ADE as the directory synchronization agent between Microsoft Exchange Server and cc:Mail. However, you can configure the connector to propagate address listings resulting from directory synchronization to indirectly connected cc:Mail post offices communicating with ADE.

  1. Select the Post Office tab.
  2. Select or clear the following options.

Option Description
Enable message tracking Tracks messages through the connector for troubleshooting. When message tracking is enabled, message activities are maintained in a log by the system attendant on Microsoft Exchange Server. The log becomes a trace of the processing of each message as each component receives, processes, and delivers it to the next component. The mail tracking log is stored in \Exchsrvr\Tracking.log.
Permit ADE to propagate entries synched to cc:Mail to downstream post offices Allows directory synchronized entries added to the cc:Mail directory from Microsoft Exchange Server to be propagated to cc:Mail post offices indirectly connected by ADE.
Preserve forwarding history on messages sent from cc:Mail to Microsoft Exchange Retains the message forwarding history as an attached file (Forward.txt) for messages sent from cc:Mail to Microsoft Exchange Server.
