Well, we are talking past each other. When I say client/server I mean
the connection over serial port/modem between the mobile client, not
on the same LAN as the PO, and the PO.
Maybe I'm wrong. [...]
Is the serial port for communications between the cc:Mail client and
the cc:Mail P.O.?
I don't know. The MS-Mail SMTP gateway that I
messed with was both
inbound from the world and outbound to the world. But the cc:Mail
gateway could easily have been different.
Well, I am not sure either. I need to have another look at that SMTP
gateway, I guess.
But if it is like you say they would not have needed a separate
Internet bridge? They could just have used the SMTP gateway?
