Hardware and Software for the Internet Link

The SAP Internet Mail Gateway belongs to the standard system of the SAP system. In addition, you require a mailing program for the Internet link. The gateway is installed together with the mailing program either on an ABAP application server or - as in the graphic - on a separate NT-, Unix- or AS/400 computer. In the last case, both computers must be linked via a TCP/IP connection.

Specify the computer on which you wish to install the Internet Mail Gateway server:

·        on an ABAP application server

·        on a separate computer

The computer on which you install the Internet Mail Gateway Server must not have the same system platform as the ABAP application server.

Include in your specifications the activation type with which the SAP Internet Mail Gateway program should run, so that the outgoing Internet messages are transferred from the SAP system to the mailing program.

If you install the Internet Mail Gateway server on a Windows NT computer, additional software is required, depending on the activation type:
