To exchange emails on the Internet I'm looking for a Mailserver software for Mac. But this SW will not be installed on a server always connected to the Internet. So my question, and I hope you can help me :

Do you know a mailserver (I heard the name of MailShare) software for Mac which is able to deliver email internaly (in my local network) and also is able to connect (through a dial-up connexion) to an Internet provider in order to retrieve/send Emails from/to Internet.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I have done a search to find something in the public domain to do what you want. The answer seems to be that there is none. But if you have MailShare, then there is a program, available at www.shareware.com that will interact with MailShare to do exactly what you want:

=============================
uucpshare-monitor-1.2.sit.hqx
                                   internet/e-mail/
                                    Mar 25,1997
                                    73 K

UUCPShare Monitor 1.2 - Contains two packages. UUCPShare--This application is a small bridge between UUCP and MailShare. It is used to allow users on a LocalTalk network to use Eudora in UUCP mode and then have MailShare send out the mail via SMTP. UUCP Monitor--This is a small background only application that serves as a means of monitoring a UUCP in-file (or other mail inbox). It  runs in the background and posts a notification (sound and flashing icon in  apple menu) when the file it is monitoring has mail in it. The notification is removed once the mail has been retrieved.

=============================

So step one is to set up MailShare, which is a commercial program, and use this bridge to make it fully functional.

Cheers,

Rifty.

I recommend to have a close look at CommuniGate from Stalker (www.stalker.com). It does all you need and much more. It's inexpensive and has free 5 users license. We have used it for about a year and we are quite happy.

Best regards.
