MS Proxy and POP3

By DarthBuck ·
I have NT Server SP5 installed with MSProxy 2.0. I am trying to set up a
Win98 workstation as a client. I can surf the web just fine on the client, but I
cannot connect to my ISPs POP3 mail server. I have installed the Proxy
client on the '98 machine and am still unable to check my mail. I looked in the
MMC on the server and the Webproxy showes an anonymous connection for
the web, and the Winsock showes my user name for a connection. Right now
I have disabled all the access controlsand filtering. But with it enabled and
giving everyone full control, I still was unable to connect.
If more info is needed please E-mail me.

Hi buck, The reason seems to be that the user by which you login to your win98 system is not given access to POP3 protocol in your Proxy server. Check PROXY SERVER for "Microsoft Internet Manager", & in "Winsock Proxy Service Properties" and enable acess control for Protocol : POP3 & SMTP. Internet browsing works as you have access for http / www protocol.

I've tried both enabling access and giving the apporpriate permissions, and I have tried disabling access control. Neither worked.
Any other suggestions?

Set your mail client to see the proxy server as your POP3 mail server. Use your regular username/password for the "REAL" mail server, but where you enter your mail server address in your e-mail client, use the name or IP address of the MS Proxy Server.

I don't see how this could work. As strange as it sounded I still tried it and it didn't work. How can setting my proxy server as the POP3 server on my client work. Once the client requests connection to my proxy server, my proxy server doesn't know what to do with it. It's not a POP3 server.

Hello,
I looked at the previous answers ? they are really helpful, but the problem might be on other place. Could you please check your e-mail POP3 client ? it may require the proxy settings to be entered manually.

I'm using both Outlook and Netscape. I use both to see if I can get one of them working. I don't see any place to manually set the settings in either of them.

OK, with MS Proxy 2.0, you need to install the Windows Proxy Client software. The proxy client software runs on your Windows 98 machine silently in the background. It tells your PC about MS-Proxy Server, and how to communicate through the proxy server to the Internet. By default, MS Proxy Server places an administrative installation point for this software on your NT Server in C:\mspclnt, and shares this folder. From your Win98 machine, you will need to open Internet Explorer, and enter http:\\<servername>\mspclnt, where <servername> is the name of your NT server. You should be able to install the Windows Sockets Proxy (WSP) client from there. Once your Windows 98 machine has the WSP software installed, Outlook should work. Program Outlook to fetch/send your mail through your regular POP3/SMTP server(s).

To quote my original question:

"I have installed the Proxy
client on the '98 machine and am still unable to check my mail."
