OK, here is the exact instructions for setting up an Outlook 2003 profile to use Applix. This is a summary of an incredibly hard to find document at “Applix”:http://aspone.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/aspone.cfg/php/enduser/fattach_get.php?p_sid=mGRDB*6j&p_li=&p_accessibility=0&p_redirect=1&p_tbl=9&p_id=366&p_created=1197482312&p_olh=0 which you can get if you have a logon there.

# Start Control Panel and start the Mail icon and choose add profile to add a new it
# Select Exchange
# For the Exchange server, type in _mail-11ps.atlarge.net_ (Actually, it doesn’t matter which of the many mail server they have as it automatically gets updated when you hook in, so mail11 is a good guess to start)
# Enter your user name, which is just your email alias, like _john.ign_ or whatever. It doesn’t have to be exact. Applix has this kind of strange thing where you get a user name and then there is a suffix which is set for all time for all users, so everyone in your company has the same suffix.
# You will now get an error message saying it can’t connect. That’s because Outlook expects to see Exchange on the LAN. Ignore the error
# Click on More Settings, so you can select the RPC over HTTP which is the magic that lets Outlook go through firewalls to the hosted Exchange server that Applix runs
# Choose the Connections tab and select “Connect to my Exchange using HTTP” and click on Exchange Proxy Settings
# Now enter at https:// the URL _rpc.atlarge.net/_
# Make sure On fast networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP (I didn’t make up that click box!)
# Make sure Basic Authentication is selected in the Proxy Authentication Settings
# Choose Next and then finish
# Start Outlook and select the profile you just created and you will get a login
# Type in bizatlarge\john.ign that is your domain is bizatlarge and then your user name and then the company suffix. Hopefully your admin told you your password.
