Set Mail to check Groupwise Webaccess email would be GREAT!
Authored by: hoosker on Feb 13, '04 09:45:36AM

I am a lone Mac in a sea of Windows and have suffered using Groupwise WebAccess to get email at work. If there is any info you could pass on to help me set up Mail to get work email I would love to be able to quit using the buggy Groupwise WebAccess! My problem is the IT Dept. here is pretty hostile toward Macs (they wish I would go away). So if I was armed with as much info as possible maybe I could convince them to help me. They know nothing about Macs. Any suggestions as to how or where to educate myself would be a great hint!

Thanks, Hoosker

I too am a mac user in a pc environment. The good news from Novell is that they soon will have a groupwise client for OS X. It is currently in beta.

How to set Mail to check Groupwise Webaccess email would be GREAT!

You can configure Mail to access the Novell mail server.

I'm doing this with Novell's free email service called MyRealbox with an IMAP account, and I've used a POP account in the past. The free email service is at <www.myrealbox.com> and the site includes info about configuring many PC email programs to access their Novell mail server.

While the info is for PC mail programs you just need to pop the needed info into the equivalent places in mail. For example, in Mac OS X 10.3, create a new account and add:
* Account Type: POP
* Description: whatever you want
* Email address: username@somewhere.com
* Full Name: Joe Bloggs
* Incoming Mail Server: your company's incoming mail server (same as on a PC)
* User Name: first part of your email address excluding the "@somewhere.com"
* Password: ********
* Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP): your company's outgoing mail server eg "smtp.myrealbox.com"

That should be enough info to get the account working.
