I used Workstation (UNIX) 2 months ago. The server of the network
is Talentix with IP address is 130.83.109.17
Now I use PC (NT 4.0) and NS Communicator 4.05 in the same
network. The password I use to access mail server must be the same
password I used to access the Workstation.
In NS Preference, first time I typed:
Outgoing mail (SMTP) server:  130.83.109.17
Incoming mail server               :  130.83.109.17
Now I type:
Outgoing mail (SMTP) server:  talentix
Incoming mail server               :  talentix
So, ohhh, I receive as the new hundres mails that I read.
I think talentix and its IP address must have the same affect.
But why?

What is your question here ?
Are you saying that the IP numbers work fine for you but not the name "talentix" ?

Then in that case, just try to ping "talentix". If it dosen't resolve to the right IP address, then you either have to use the fully qualified domain name or check your DNS/wins settings.

Your problem is with using Talentix in your server settings.  It does not resolve-- I just checked it and that is not the correct name given to you.  perhaps it is another name!

The IP address 130.83.109.17 does work fine when I pinged it.

Previously, you had specified "keep mail on server",
and your previous mail-package downloaded
only the "new" messages.

Now, with your new mail-client,
you are getting _ALL_ the messages
which have been accumulating on the mail-server.

This only will happen _ONCE_ but
it is annoying, isn't it?

DNS-service seems fine:

$ nslookup 130.83.109.17

Name:    talentix.iib.bauing.tu-darmstadt.de
