Question

Although NT database users are set up in the GMS Mail server, users are unable to login and collect their email.

Answer

If some users experience difficulty in retrieving their mail due to denied access, the problem is most likely caused by the users not having Logon privilege or not being on the local machine.

Logon Privilege is the privilege you need to give a user or group of users so that they can use a POP account with their NT Username and Password. To give Logon Privilege to a group you need to use the NT User Manager, select Policy, Rights and a dialogue will appear allowing you to select the privileges you give to certain groups of users. Finally, select Log on locally.

GMS Mail can be configured to ask remote NT/2000 systems to validate user names and passwords.
