Wait a minute..... Why ask us here? Why not just call the IT department of the company he works for? They would know the exact steps and information needed.SerialThriller said:also, what i'm trying to do is get a set up at home where i can access a friend's email which is (i think) on a private network. And i am not sure of how i would connect to the VPN server to get that mail...
No one here can tell you the exact settings needed for the company email system since none of us know how the company has their email setup.SerialThriller said:i could do that, but i'd like to know a bit more about it before i do, as in like what numbers i need (IP and what else....?) to connect to the mail server?
Also, do i need a server address to connect?
Like I said, it depends on how the company has their email system setup. It could be simple like pop3/smtp, IMAP, RPC over HTTPs, or they could require a VPN connection in order to check the email outside of the company.SerialThriller said:grrr i knows that, just wondering what is typically required for a non web based e mail server...?
