I'm trying to set up Apple Internet Mail Server on a small
network. The network is connected to my ISP with an Ascend
Pipeline 75, that dials on demand.
The setup works fine for mail among local users, and for
outgoing mail. How do I get it to connect and get incoming mail.

You don't. As far as I know, AIMS is not designed to get mails at certain times only (scheduling). It doesn't "get" mail anyway, other mail servers connect to you and "bring" it to you.

Some ISP offer a workaround solution to this problem, however. For instance at www.demon.net, the secondary mail server for your domain is their (ISP's) server, so when you're down or offline, mail is stored on their machine with permanent connection. Now, as soon as you dial up to the ISP, their mail server gets notified and starts delivering the waiting mail to your AIMS.

So, the setup problem is now at the ISP side, anyway :-)

I hope this helps
