When the "Microsoft Mail Server" file is locked, the following error message appears:

The Microsoft Mail Server Could Not Be Loaded Because the "Microsoft Mail Server" Is Write Protected.


The Mail server requires an unlocked file to function properly. If you encounter this message, do the following:

  1. In the System Folder, select the "Microsoft Mail Server" file.
  2. From the File menu, choose Get Info.
  3. Deselect the Locked box. Close the Get Info box.
  4. Restart the server.

Please note that in Microsoft Mail version 3.0, the server file may be locked and still function properly.
