Pegasus Configuration Hints


Using Pegasus, version ? (assume it is called winpmail.exe)
(an example of a very popular Email client program),
select the "Network config ??" function under the "Options" menu.

CAUTION: We are still trying to get all the details correct here.


Example of "Your" Mboxes(tm) Information

Assume you have gotten Frank.Jones for your Mboxes(tm) mailbox, so that Frank.Jones@mboxes.com is your "Lifetime Email Address(tm)". Your mailbox "account" will be Frank.Jones.MB@mail.mboxes.com (your "POP account" at Mboxes.com). Assume, for this example, that your Mailbox Access Password is "kitty43". Also, you have decided to use Frankie Jay as your Email "Handle" (your "Email" Name).


Example "Other Mailbox" Provider Information

Assume that your provider (somewhere.com) has an SMTP server at mail.somewhere.com that you would normally use to send mail, and a POP server at pop.somewhere.com where you generally get your Email from the frank123 mailbox there, using the password "pickle.007". Then, most probably, frank123@pop.somewhere.com is your POP account there, and frank123@somewhere.com is your present mailbox address ("Other Email Address") with your provider.


Case 1: You decide to have all Mboxes(tm) Email forwarded to your current (Other) mailbox.

With this very popular configuration, the world uses your Mboxes(tm) address to send mail to you, but you get your mail in the one mailbox near you, and you will not need to check two mailboxes.

1. In the "For receiving mail" box ...

2. In the "For sending mail" box ...

3. Elsewhere, in the "Outgoing mail handling" box ...


Case 2: You decide to get Email directly from your Mboxes(tm) mailbox.

This configuration is useful when there is no mailbox provided by your access provider, or if you (for some reason) choose not to use it.

1. In the "For receiving mail" box ...

2. In the "For sending mail" box ...

3. Elsewhere, in the "Outgoing mail handling" box ...


Case 3: You want to get mail from Both mailboxes.
