This article was previously published under Q103802

After you set up version 3.0 of the Microsoft Mail Gateway to MHS, the easiest way to test it is to address a message to yourself from Microsoft Mail, looping the message through MHS and back to yourself.

The message is routed through this path:

   MS Mail user >

     MS Mail Database >
       MHS Gateway >
         MHS Routes the message >
           MHS Gateway >
             MS Mail Database >
               MS Mail User

To address the message from the Windows client

  1. From within the Mail client, choose the Compose button.
  2. On the To: line, type the following address



          Square brackets   Tells Mail that this address is not contained
                            within one of its address lists
          MHS:              Tells Mail this message should be sent out
                            through the MHS gateway
          ADMIN             Your Microsoft Mail mailbox ID
          MSMAIL            The name of the gateway host, in MHS

To address the message from the MS-DOS client

  1. From within Mail, select Compose. Your default address view appears.
  2. Press the LEFT ARROW key to see all the other address lists.
  3. Select the MHS list. A blank address box or a list of addresses appears.

NOTE: Addresses displayed here are the ones entered into the postoffice using the ADMIN.EXE or IMPORT.EXE utility.

  1. Press the INSERT key to bring up the new address box.
  2. If your gateway in MHS has been defined as MSMAIL and your Microsoft mailbox ID is Admin, type in the address ADMIN@MSMAIL.
