Mozilla Question


Can I setup Mozilla to use Microsoft Mail? I work at a small company and we use a windows NT server with Microsoft Mail running.

The post office has about 15 user names and we can send mail to each user.

I am running LINUX at home and fell in love with MOZILLA and MOZILLA MAIL.... especially the spam filters .

I have the windows version installed here at work but can't seem to tell if there is a way to setup microsoft mail.

Any thoughts?

Brian

I hope I'm not killin this for ya, takin away your 0 replies, but figure what the heck, let's do this methodically:
How do you connect to "Microsoft Mail" with a Microsoft client, and which client is it that you use to connect?

Any mail server settings that you enter, or is it all done via something like "IMAP" or similar?

Cool

The account names are just DoeJ or JohnD or something along that line.....No domain or anything @.com

So far, the only things I've seen would be something like a webmail interface, but that doesn't help much with Mozilla. Possibly look at fetchmail to retrieve the messages from the server and store them locally, then setup Mozilla Mail to read the local messages?

Bah, hopefully someone who has done something related to Microsoft Mail will chime in.
