The following additional requirements apply when you install the Internet Agent:
The GroupWise system in which you install the Internet Agent (GWIA) must meet the following requirements:
The domain’s version must be equal to or later than the GWIA’s version. The domain’s version is determined by the Message Transfer Agent (MTA) version running for it.
The versions of any post offices that the GWIA accesses on behalf of POP3 or IMAP4 clients must be equal to or later than the GWIA’s version. A post office’s version is determined by the Post Office Agent (POA) version running for it.
The POA and MTA need to be accessible to the GWIA for IMAP, POP, and ICAL.
Before you install the Internet Agent (GWIA), ensure that your network is configured for Internet connectivity.
Internet Connection: You can connect to the Internet by using a direct connection over a leased line or a standard switched telephone line.
Internet Domain Name: You must have an Internet domain name. The domain name must be defined by an MX RR (mail exchanger resource record) in DNS.
DNS Server Access or Relay Host Access: If you want the GWIA to send messages directly to other SMTP hosts, it requires access to a DNS server for address resolution. Otherwise, it requires access to a relay host that can perform the address resolution and message routing. Ensure the server where you plan to install the GWIA is configured to access a DNS server or can access your relay host. For specific details, refer to your server documentation.
IP Address: The GWIA’s server requires a static IP address and a fully qualified DNS hostname.
