Designating the Primary Mail System

The administrative information that you assign drives both the Email pagelet and Calendar Events pagelet. The portal supports Lotus Notes/Domino, Microsoft Outlook Web Access/Exchange, POP3, and IMAP systems for email, and Lotus and Microsoft for calendars. Remember that only one email and calendar system is designated as the portal's default system. The default system is considered primary and is the first email section on a user's pagelet. It is possible to override the system default for an individual user.

This section discusses:

Note: For the pagelets to be fully functional, you must complete setup procedures for the application and mail servers.

If your web server is SSL-enabled, in addition to specifying an HTTPS URL on the E-mail and Calendar Defaults page, you must do the following:

  • For Microsoft Exchange, in the ASP file change the strProtocol value to https, or change the isFormBasedAuth flag to true, or both.

  • For POP/IMAP, specify the SSL port number in the mail server URL.

  • No extra steps are required for Domino.
