Macintosh ( Networking & Email )

By jrwowner ·
In our Office we are exclusively NT 4.0 / Windows 2000 with a few '98 workstations dotted around and oh yes - the one obligatory Mac for one of the web designers. it is a G4 and I would like to have it connected such that the user can receive email from our exchange servers on the mac instead of him having an NT workstation that he uses just for internal email. The mac works fine with the assigned IP address, Internet connectivity is OK. What do I need to do in order to get exchange email on the MAC ?

Mac and email

by JackieB In reply to Macintosh ( Networking & ...

This is probably not the best answer but there are PC emulation programs for the MAC that would allow you to run a PC OS and asociated software. I haven't been around MAC's for a little while, but I seem to remember they used a separate partition onthe hard drive to run the PC OS from, and you could switch back and forth between them. There were even a few MAC's that had dual processors, with the second one being an intel processor to run the PC OS on. I dont know if those are still available or not, but they did have emulation software that worked, even if it was a little slow, but with the improvements in processors, that could be a lot different now. Hope this helps. Jackie
