On an AppleTalk network with more than one AppleTalk zone, the Mail server may be visible in the Chooser on some workstations, but not on others.


There may be a problem on the AppleTalk network or there may be a problem with the workstation itself. The names shown by the Chooser are found by the Chooser software, not Mail software.


Check the network router or bridge, INITs (extensions), network card, System, and so forth.

From the server machine, check if you can see the name of the server in the Chooser. If you can see the name on the server machine itself, the server is operating correctly.

Names of Mail servers, AppleShare servers, network printers and other network devices are stored by each router on the network. Programs can query the network/router to gain information about the status of the network.
