Incoming Mail Settings

Postby tdibuono@srcinc.com on Mon Jan 25, 2010 11:20 am

I was looking to test the new exchange mail importer in alloy 6, but i can not configure anything for exchange, just select a profile. i am assuming this 'profile' is an outlook profile, but here is the thing, we do not have outlook on our server. is there any way to configure this without outlook? is this something that can be added to the configuration?

yup it needs a profile. your post sent me googling about and it seems others have wanted to create profiles without installing outlook too.

How to create MAPI profiles without installing Outlook - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306962

Creating MAPI Profiles - http://www.theemailadmin.com/2009/08/cr ... -profiles/

can't say I've tried it, but seems you can do it. I might try it, but would love someone to post back to tell me if it works in case I don't get to it.

Thanks for the info, i have looked at those articles, but can not seem to find the NewProf.exe anywhere, i even googled for it and one link suggested it was in the office resource kit, but it was not.. i also tried the profman2. and the application ran but will not create a profile either. i checked that second link you sent and that is basically the same as the ms link, but they go into more about outlook.. i did download the Microsoft Exchange Server MAPI Client and Collaboration Data Objects 1.2.1 install as recommended by another site i found but it appears to need scripting or programming to be able to access it (couldnt fnid any control panel icon or other way to access the profiles.

I tried to run profman2, but I just get errors.

Has anyone else ever gone this route?

What is the difference between using the Exchange feature vs POP 3?

both will achieve the same results, but Exchange will give you tighter integration with Exchange. most of the time someone running Exchange won't even want to enable pop3 since it's less secure.
