Running Scripts when logging into Exchan

By stuart.douglas ·
Our current system has several computers running Windows 95 and 95. These users when accessing there email have to enter a username, domain and password. Is there any way to run a script when the users log onto their email? Currently we are running Outlook as the client and Exchange as the server.

Getting mail from an Exchange server when a user opens Outlook is accomplished by having Outlook configured for "on line" usage. From the Tools menu in Outlook, select service, select Exchange Server service, properties. Select the manually control connection state, then select "connect with the network". Users who now open Outlook will automatically get their mail instead of having to use send/receive in the tools menu.

note: there really isn't any "log on" per se to an Exchange server on a network. One opens Outlook and depending upon the Exchange service configuration in Outlook, "connects to the network" or must manually "connect" to the network by using the send/receive radio button in the tools drop down menu.

further, if your network uses an "off site" email provider [such as an ISP POP3 host] you configure the POP3 connection to automatically download email at a specified interval. Then you have to configure fowarding in Exchange to foward those email messages [with a different @<domain name.XXX> to those users with the internal @<your domain name.XXX> [using a pointer to accomplish this]. Specific configuration steps are to lenghty to spell out here. MS Exchange help is a good source for configuring external mail providers for internal email clients.
