GW 5.5 in NW Small Business 5, PFA, GWIA, won't pull down i-net mail

GW 5.5 in NW Small Business 5, PFA, GWIA, won't pull down i-net mail

GW 5.5 in NW Small Business 5, PFA, GWIA, won't pull down i-net mail

(OP)
I installed GW 5.5 as part of Small business suite 5 and can't get it to pull down internet mail. The isp is set to forward POP3, but we can't get it to do it for one account let alone others.
Call to Novell (paid) didn't help, they just made sure their
stuff was working okay. ISP isn't much help. If only they'd look at their logs to see if it is authenticating (I don't think it is). Does anyone have all the settings for INETCFG and any other cfg programs I'm missing. I used the NICE that comes with NWSB5, but it still isn't working.
Any info on setting up GW and internet mail would help. Need all the .cfg .mta .poa settings (examples). What's the deal with the class setting in pfa.cfg? Does it remain pointing to Novell? or should it point to my ISP?

We did get it working but PFA made us very nervious. Other things started not to work property. So we when to the Enhancement Pack. Bingo, the new way, not PFA, works, and Office 2000 works.
NOTE A GOTCHA: Install the EP on the server, clean booted with nothing running else you get a partial install.

What EP? What specific parts of it helped?
What 'New way' ?

RE: GW 5.5 in NW Small Business 5, PFA, GWIA, won't pull down i-net mail

oops sorry
EH = Novell Groupwise 5.5 Enhancement Pack
New way = You get a pull down menu on you tool bar called Accounts. it works like Microsofts "accounts" under Outlook Express.

I can't find the Enhancement pack anywhere. I've looked all over the Novell site.

Where can I get it?
