Using Internet Mail

Internet Mail is a new mail reader developed by Microsoft for Windows NT and Windows 95. The program provides basic support for reading and writing Internet mail. Internet Mail differs from Microsoft Exchange (the e-mail tool shipped with Windows NT) in one general but significant way: Internet Mail offers much less functionality. Internet Mail is designed solely for users to read and write mail over the Internet. Unlike Exchange, Internet Mail cannot support incoming or outgoing mail with mail providers other than the Internet. For example, Exchange can support a number of mail providers, such as corporate e-mail systems like Lotus cc:Mail and online services such as Compuserve or the Microsoft Network. Exchange users can read mail from and send mail to mailboxes in those other mail systems. In addition, Exchange includes a number of features supporting groups of users in an organization. This section of the chapter, however, focuses on setting up and using Internet Mail.
