Windows2000 and Microsoft Mail Postoffice
With the previous versions of
Windows (95,98, NT4), Microsoft supplied the possibility to
create a "Microsoft
Postoffice" for a small company e-mail system.
Windows 2000 does NOT include anymore this feature
(I think, that MS assumes that
everybody either uses now the MS Exchange Server or a POP3 e-mail
based on the new Internet standard )
However: if you have such an e-mail system on an NT4-system and
you like to upgrade to
Windows2000, you can continue to use the MS-Mail Post-office.

||To be able to identify the files
any doubt, I configure Windows Explorer
in the Folder Options, tab View
"Display the full path in the address bar"
and NOT to
"Hide file Extensions for known file types"
Since Windows2000 does NOT include anymore the feature to
"MS Mail Postoffice", you
need to copy the files from the Windows NT4 installation CD-ROM:
||In the directory "I386"
NT4 installation CD-ROM,
locate the files:
and copy them to the
SYSTEM32-directory of your
Then open a Command-Prompt
Windows, switch to the SYSTEM32 directory:
- CD WINNT\SYSTEM32
and expand the files copied from the NT4 CD-ROM:
- expand wgpoadmn.dl_ wgpoadmn.dll
- expand wgpocpl.cp_ wgpocpl.cpl
You have now access in your Control-Panel to the applet for
"Microsoft Mail Postoffice":
you can now create/administer
a Microsoft Mail Postoffice.
