Moving Mercury and Pegasus from a Novell Server to a Win2000 Server

Moving Mercury and Pegasus from a Novell Server to a Win2000 Server

Our Novell 3.2 server is slowly fading and will be put out to
pasture. The main software that we use, manufacturing and finance, have
also migrated to Windows. So I have purchased a Windows 2000 server.

I currently use a SPOOL directory for internet mail. I have a separate PC
running Mercury/32 that tosses the mail to the SPOOL directory on the
Novell server.
How should I set up Mercury and Pegasus?

There will be an active directory on the Win2000 server and all the
users will have directories. Do I set up a mail directory for Pegasus to
use?

Thanks in advance. I want to keep using Mercury and Pegasus
and not switch to Exchange.

Alan

Well, I would have upgraded to Netware 6.5, set up the users in NDS
utilized Mercury NLM's and Shoehorned Squirrel Mail on top using the
native Apache/PHP web services. That way you get total ease of user
administration, webmail access, rock solid reliability and reduced
exposure to cracks and viruses....but, I 'spose you can do it on W2k.
Read the documentation for M32 carefully.
I don't think Merc32 makes use of AD other than perhaps through LDAP.
