SUMMARY

When more than one Microsoft Mail server is installed on a single network zone, it is not easy to determine which server is on which Macintosh by looking at the names in the Chooser window, unless the servers were named as they were installed.

MORE INFORMATION

If the servers were installed without being named, do the following to determine which server is on which Macintosh:

  1. Shut down all the Mail servers.
  2. Remove every Mail server from the network (that is, unplug the network cable).
  3. Boot the Mail servers.
  4. On each server, select the Chooser and click the MS Mail driver. Note that the Mail 3.0 driver is named "MS Mail" and the Mail 2.0 driver is named "MS Mail 2.0". On the right side of the Chooser window, only one server should be seen. This is the Mail server installed on that specific Macintosh.

The name of the server is not located anywhere on the Installer disk. Once you have determined which server is on which Macintosh, write the name on the label of the Installer disk (the disk used on that Macintosh). If the server is to be renamed, the new name should also be written on the label of the Installer disk.
