Multiple Exchange Mail Clients
The mail post-office is define, now we have configured the mail-client,
and could start using
the E-mail Client, but you like
multiple users on the
same system to read/write their mail, which can be done by
Multiple Mail-Profiles (you can have also Multiple Profiles with Outlook as mail client) :
||Right-click on the "Inbox" icon on the
and select "Properties"
||The configuration of your
default Mail-Profile is displayed.
Click on "Show Profiles".
||By default, the Profile
"MS Exchange Settings"
"Windows Messaging Settings"
(Win95B, Win98, NT4)
has been created.
( Clicking on "Properties"
to the detailed configuration,(see above).
To create an additional Profiles
(for example for a different User
on the same system), click on
Like in the original e-mail
you need to select:
- "Microsoft Mail"
||When prompted for a name
for the new Profile, you can
keep the suggested name,
however it makes sense to define
as name of the Profile the name
of the user, like in this example:
||When prompted, select the name
of the User (must de defined
already by the Mail Administrator
in the Post-office).
||When prompted for the location
of the "Personal Address Book",
you MUST define a new path
(or a different name of the PAB-file)
make a new directory for each
additional user and define it
in the setup of the user:
||Like the "Personal Address
define either a different name
for the PST-file or a different
path (I suggest to store the
"Personal Folder "
the same directory as the
"Personal Address Book".
||Once additional Profiles are
defined, you can select the
default Profile, to be used
by the Mail-client.
||You need also to configure the
e-mail Client, select from the
menu: "Tools" , "Options"
By default, the e-mail client
is configured to use the Profile
created for the first user.
Change that to:
"Prompt for a Profile to be used"
When now starting up the e-mail client software:
the User can select his/her mail-profile.
To ensure the privacy of the e-mail message, you should
activate Password security:
||In the e-mail client, select from the menu:
"Tools" , "Options"
(you can also
right-click on the "Inbox" on the desktop
and then select the proper profile)
select "Microsoft Mail",
In the "Microsoft Mail"
select the tab: "Logon"
an take off the
Checkmark on "When logging on,
automatically enter password"
||On starting up the e-mail client,
you are now prompted to enter
your e-mail password
