Folks,

I have some questions about configuring the AS/400 as a Pop server through
an ISP, if that's what you're doing.

I use one that has multiple domains.  I haven't been able to get mail quite
working, although I've successfully done it on another AS/400 on an intranet
without a problem.

I was told that we need to tell the ISP to add an RX record to the DNS so
that when we send mail using the AS/400 as a server, it knows how to do
this.  Then the ISP said that the mail server domain has to be named:

mail.servername.com

So, let's say we access the AS/400 with www.servername.com.  Then we need an
RX DNS entry as mail.severname.com so that we can send and receive mail for
user@servername.com?

Does this sound right?  Is there anything special you have to do when
setting up user names with WRKUSRSMTP?

The end result is we want to be able to send and receive mail with the
domain names set up... so we will have..

user@server1.com
and
user@server2.com

Both domains are accessable via www.server1.com and www.server2.com
respectivley.

Thanks for any help...
