On NT, the
msgstore channel is used to deliver messages to
addresses on the local host. Indeed, on NT, the first
msgstore channel seen in the PMDF configuration file
is the local channel from the PMDF point of view; features
such as aliases, etc., which apply to the "local"
channel apply to that first
msgstore channel on NT. (This
is in contrast to the situation on OpenVMS and UNIX platforms, on which
there is a separate
l channel---the local channel--- which
is distinct from the
msgstore channel.) Such delivered
messages are stored in the PMDF MessageStore, a message store geared
towards IMAP usage, or the PMDF popstore, a message store streamlined
for use with POP3 clients, respectively.
Normally, the PMDF MessageStore is used as the main "local"
message store on NT platforms, and on NT, the PMDF configuration
utility always generates a
msgstore channel. The
msgstore channel can also deliver to the PMDF popstore,
however, so NT sites can, if they prefer, use the PMDF popstore as the
main "local" message store; or sites can use both the PMDF
popstore and the PMDF MessageStore.
The PMDF MessageStore is a complete message store, with its own
management utilities, API, etc. For full details on the PMDF
MessageStore and in particular the
msgstore channel, see
the PMDF popstore & MessageStore Manager's Guide.
