For the purposes of evaluating our migration path from MS-Mail to Exchange
Server, I have a small test network. I am running NT 4.0 SP4, onto which I
installed the 120-day eval of Exchange Server 5.5. My MS-Mail Post Office
is installed on a Novell NetWare 4.11 server.
I appear to have successfully configured the MS-Mail Connector, but when I

Any suggestions gratefully received...
