email setup in LAN

By cleyr ·
Our company is new and we just setup our first server using Microsoft Server 2000. Our users are currently dialing up individually to send/receive their emails. What we want to do is to have the server dial up and receive/send all emails and distribute the mails to the individual users. How can this be done? Any help will do. thanks.

The functionality you describe (that server dials up users and receives/sends and distributes messages to users) is somewhat problematic. You may however try different approaches.

1. If your users dial up to your company network, you may configure server to dial back. This feature is called callback and is meant to transfer phone charges back to company, or to increase security (by calling back to fixed number).

2. You may instruct users to configure forwarding of certain mail items. I use it to be notifyied of certain server activities (backups). I have it configured so that I am notified on my mobile phone when such activity is completed.

3. You may configure forwarding of some messages to some public mail service, like yahoo.com. Users can then use web browsers to access their mail.

Yeah answer 2 sounds right on. I've never seen an email server that dials up mail to the user. Another option to answer #2 would be to use Exchange and OWA (Outlook Web Access) where they can check their corporate email from a web browser using a local Internet connection. The only thing remotely similar to this would be a server that dials up and transfers mail from a main mail server, such as the OLD Novell MHS system, or was that Beyond Mail? Cna't remember..Good luck.

There are a wide variety of options available to you, you could use Exchange server and register a domain name, that would give you the myname@mycompany.com etc email address, if this is the way your going to go then you can use a program called PopBeamer, using this program means that only one dial happens from your server and collects everybodys email and then dumps them into your exchange user mailboxes, I would use this PopBeamer only until all your clients know what your new email addresses are then you can uninstall PopBeamer.

Hope this example helps
