Sharing Netscape Mail folder on Ethernet running VICOM
Posted on 1998-05-15
I have set up a VICOM gateway on a PM 7350/200 servicing 5 (soon to be 10) Netscape client Macs (varying vintages). The company has only one email account, and I have set up the mail "postoffice" shared folder on the server (moved it out of the system folder), and set the incoming mail folder preference on each Netscape installation to point to that shared mail folder. Problem is, some machines keep defaulting back to a it's own local mail folder, fragmenting the email inbox distribution across the network until discovered and corrected again.
Q1: Is it workable to have this arrangement as it stands or do I need some other add-in to have it work successfully?
Q2: Will a user be locked out of the mail folder if it is currently being accessed by another user?
Many thanks in advance - very urgent...
