We are trying to configure our systems so that our UNIX users can run
MS-Mail using WABI and read the MMF files on our Novell server.  We
are exploring a couple of options: one is to nfs mount the Novell
post-office filesystem to the Solaris server where WABI is running;
the other option is to nfs mount a UNIX file system to the Novell
server and use that as a postoffice directory.

The Solaris server is a SparcCenter 1000 running Solaris 2.4, and the
Novell servers are running Netware 3.11 / 3.12.  

I would appreciate any comments you may have about this sort of
concept, such as security issues, backup issues, relative cost, or
alternative scenarios.

Thank you in advance for your comments.

1. Solaris 2.3 with WABI, MS-MAIL and Novell.

I was asked the following question and would like to know if it is
a) possible  and if so
b) how do I do it. (what software is required, configuration info etc).

   Admin. uses MS-Windows on a Novell Network. The internal mailing system
uses MS-Mail with the local Postoffice (mail storage) on the Local Novell
server. Most staff use MS-DOS PC's runnning MS-Windows to access the Novell
Network, Mail, Wordprocessors etc. Technical and Research computing is done on
a network of Sun's (and other Unix Workstations / Servers etc).

   Can a user of the Solaris 2.3 on one of the Sun SparcStations access his
MS-Mail account on the Novell Server using WABI and running the MS-Mail
client, and what ever else is needed.

Any and all info cheerfully accepted.

Thanks in advance.
