Note the protocol entry: outgoing mail to the AS/400 (and beyond for
that matter) needs to hit the SMTP server to be delivered, and the
POP3 server isn't being used at this point. Make sure that the SMTP
server is properly configured and running. SMTP accepts the message
from the client (Netscape, EG), checks the Directory Entry to see
where the message should go, then arranges for delivery. In an intranet
situation, this will generally be to pass it off to the POP server to
store until the recieving user picks it up. It may be to connect to a
remote SMTP server to pass the message on to another machine, or maybe
to pass the note to Officevision.
