SUMMARY

When you use the version 3.0, 3.0b, or 3.2 Microsoft Mail for PC Networks External Mail program (EXTERNAL.EXE) to transfer mail messages from one postoffice to another, you can use the -Q4 switch for debugging problem areas. The -Q4 switch is an undocumented switch and should be used for troubleshooting only.

If you invoke version 3.0 or later of the External Mail program with the -Q4 command-line option, numbers will appear in yellow. The letters represent the following:
