After you install the Microsoft Exchange Connection on a MS Mail (AppleTalk) server, you can use an access connection gateway for additional servers you want to connect to Microsoft Exchange Server through the gateway. An access connection gateway allows mail servers not directly connected to the Microsoft Mail Connector to exchange messages with recipients on a Microsoft Exchange Server.
For example, you may have an MS Mail (AppleTalk) system with multiple servers. You can configure the Microsoft Exchange Connection on one server that will serve as a gateway postoffice. You can then install the access gateway connection on the remaining MS Mail (AppleTalk) servers. These servers will have an indirect connection through the Microsoft Exchange Connection for sending messages to Microsoft Exchange Server recipients. Setting up an access gateway is a two-part process that requires:
For more information on how access connection gateways work, see your Microsoft Mail for AppleTalk Networks documentation.
You can extract the access connection gateway from the Microsoft Exchange Connection using the Microsoft Exchange Connection floppy disk. When the access connection gateway is extracted from the server on which the Microsoft Exchange Connection is installed, an icon is placed on the Microsoft Exchange Connection floppy disk. This is used to install the access connection gateway on MS Mail (AppleTalk) servers.
Before you install an access connection gateway on an MS Mail (AppleTalk) server, make sure you have completed the procedure for extracting the access connection gateway. You can use an access connection gateway component for mail servers you want to indirectly connect to the Microsoft Exchange Server through the Microsoft Exchange Connection gateway.
Note Gateway addresses that are not supported by the Microsoft Exchange Connection are not available for installation.
