NT4 SP6, Exchange5.5 S.P.3 on a server, a client running Win98se and Wingate
3.05 routeur on an ADSL connection to the internet, (in France, using
ppptp); clients: Win98 outlook clients 97 and 2000, and several Mac Outlook
(note: the Mac's can retrieve mail via the LAN on the internet using Outlook
When I wish to retrieve or send mail from the internet through Exchange, I
need an RAS connection: How do I configure this RAS so it "dials" through
the DSL connection on the Wingate machine? In the history of Wingate I get a
DNS lookup from the server machine which does not resolve.. I've heard about
the 'MX' entry in the DNS server. Could this be the problem? what should I
enter in this MX record?
The strange thing is that I can use explorer on the server and all the W98
clients, so DNS resolving should work, no?
When I try to retrieve email with the Outlook97 and 2K on clients through
the ADSL connection, (with my mail-providers wanadoo, Libertysurf and
voxpopuli.fr), I get every time this box "retrieving mail", than I get a new
box with the name of the provider (ex. wanadoo.fr), and I can't receive
mail. It takes ages before these boxes close.
I.M.H.O it is an DNS issue, or did I miss something in the Wingate setup?
I'm desperate, Please help!!
Thank you for your time,
