    I'm trying to get my M$ Proxy Server 2.0 to see Incoming and outgoing e-mail(eudora).

    In the Winsock Proxy server Protocols POP3 is on POrt 110 using TCP and Inbound. SMTP(Client)mis on Port 25 TCP and listed as outbound.

    In the permissons Protocol on Winproxy POP3 and SMTP(client) are set to grant access to everyone. The mail server is listed in the LAT file. Eudora's web site says to just enable the ports on Proxy and it will work. I thought everything I did enabled the ports.

    Greetings

    You need to install the Proxy client on all your user's machines that you want to be able to connect to the internet.

    To do that, connect to the proxy server via Network neighbourhood and you will see a MSPCLNT share, and in it are setup files for the proxy server.

    Install the proxy client, reboot the users machine, and they will be able to get their mail.

    You need to have the proxy client loaded to be able to access any other port besides port 80.

    Cheers

    I already did the msclient setup and all I could see in the Internet options was HTTP, Secure, Gopher and the rest. They were set up with port 80. When I tried out the e-mail I send a message and went to the Eudora Mail program and saw the e-mail I sent waiting to go out. 30 minutes after I sent out the message it was still in the Mail Server queue. So how do I get the Mail Server to send out mail and receive it?

    Is the mail server on the same machine as Proxy? If not, then it needs the proxy client loaded as well.

    Cheers
