    PMServer.txt

    Greetings -

     

    Many years ago I set up our home computers with Pegasus running on one as a mail server. The directions to how to do it were in a file called PMServer.txt that I downloaded from somewhere. It's been so long ago (like years) I have no idea where I found it. Can anyone point me to a source for it?

     

    Many thanks in advance.

     And Congrats for the 30 years of service starting with 2020. Happy New Year!

     


    Cheers;

    I'm afraid I've never heard about this file. Anyway, there are several discussions about the use of Pegasus Mail on a LAN (with and without Mercury32) on the Listserv mailing list. You can search its archives after a subject like "Attempting to set up computer access across network not succeeding". The year was 2012...

    TTBOMK I think it is a matter of setting the correct path to the remote home mailbox via UNC using Pconfig. You'll see they had problems to make it work on W7 at that time, not a problem today as Pconfig is a Win32 binary today.

    I was trying to find a message from Thomas Stephenson explaining why Pegasus Mail is not a simple e-mail client but a full mail system. Unfortunately I fail to locate his explanation to me which included a full lesson on how to setup Pegasus Mail on a LAN for multiple users. Tomorrow I'll try on my own archives...

    Re: PMServer.txt

    I have a pdf document that might help.  It's titled Network Administrator's Guide, DOS and Windows Versions.  It's heavy on Netware but the Windows related stuff is in there too.  Send me a PM with your email address if you would like me to send it to you.

    I run a network installation of Pegasus Mail at the office so can probably help with specific questions.

    Re: PMServer.txt

    Thank you, Brian and Euler -

    The pmserver.txt file is signed by Chris Floyd at caladmin.com. It finally dawned on me I should try his old email address to at least see if he's still there. Will let you know if anything turns up.

    Meanwhile, my network setup is such a cobbled together mess I won't trouble you with those details.

    Thanks again,
