You can extract access gateways from version 3.0 or later Microsoft Mail for AppleTalk Networks servers that contain a master gateway. The access gateways can then be installed on additional servers to allow local users to send messages through the master gateway.

To do this, the Network Manager must use the Gateway Installer program (located in the Gateways folder included on the Extras Disk, Disk 4).


Although it is possible to install the access gateway while you are signed into the server from a remote workstation, Microsoft recommends that you run the Gateway Installer program on the Macintosh containing the Mail server receiving the access gateway.

After you install the access gateway, the master gateway will authorize the access gateway server to send mail through the gateway. Any defined gateway recipients on the master gateway will automatically be propagated to the access server.

Steps to Install the Access Gateway

In the following description, assume that the Mail server containing the master gateway is named "Master" and the server receiving the access gateway is named "Access."

  1. Sign in as the Network Manager of Master.
  2. Start the Gateway Installer program.
  3. Select the name of the gateway to be extracted from the "Gateways Installed on This Server" window.
  4. From the Gateway menu, choose Extract Access Gateway. Use the Save dialog box to save the file to your hard disk drive or to a floppy disk.
  5. Transfer the access component file to the mail Server, which will receive the access gateway.
  6. Sign in as the Network Manager of Access.
  7. Start the Gateway Installer program.
  8. From the Access menu, choose Install Access Gateway. When you are prompted for an input file, use the file exported in step 3.
  9. Quit the Gateway Installer program.
