New Printers for 7413 Terminal Room
Problems Sending Mail from WiscWorld Mail Server
The queue names will not change. UNIX queue names are user7single and user7double. The PC queue name is \\print\sscc7413.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WINDOWS 95/98 PC USERS: You will need to delete and recreate any print shares you currently have defined for SSCC7413 before you will be able to print successfully to these printers after the changes take place tomorrow. This is because different print drivers are needed. It only takes a minute to delete and create print shares. Instructions are provided in pp. 3-6 of SSCC SSCC Pub. 5-8.
If you are trying to send mail from a non-campus IP address and your messages are bouncing, you should contact your Internet service provider and get the correct outgoing mail server information from them. SSCC staff will be glad to tell you how to change the settings on your email program, but will not know what the correct settings are.
Check out the related article at DoIT's web site. Note that DoIT suggests changing the smtp setting to smpt2.services.wisc.edu. We don't think this is good advice because smpt2.services.wisc.edu uses the same open relay that caused the problem to begin with. It may work for a while but it's unlikely to be a long term solution.
