Versions 2.1 and 3.0 of Microsoft Mail Gateway to SMTP spawns SMTPGET.EXE to query the SMTP mailbag on the Microsoft Mail for PC Networks postoffice, and then translate it to Microsoft Mail Message Format(MMFF) and deposit it into the M:\SMTP\from_nc.api text file.

The MMFF structure is defined in the Microsoft Mail Software Development Kit File Format API(FFAPI) manual.

SMTPGET.EXE is started with the following options:

SMTPGET -d<m> -h -j -n1 m:\smtp\from_nc.api


This is the same program that the Microsoft Software Development Kit (File Format API) uses to get mail from the Mail for PC Networks postoffice The options specified are defined in the FFAPI manuals. They mean:

-d<m>                  the drive that contains the MS Mail Post Office
-h                     use the extended header MMFF format
-j                     use encapsulation MMFF format
-n1                    get 1 message at a time from the SMTP mailbag
m:\smtp\from_nc.api    save the MMFF formatted messages in this file
