QuickMail comment — Mark H. Anbinder writes in response to our comment last week that it would be silly to run a QuickMail client on an AppleShare Server 3.0 server machine:
Nothing at all silly about it. AppleShare 3.0 is designed to run as one of any number of applications under System 7, so there’s no reason that an AppleShare 3.0 server machine couldn’t be used as a QuickMail workstation. Obviously the more activity local to a workstation running AppleShare 3.0 in the background, the worse the server performance, and the more server activity, the worse the jerkiness on the workstation. Same as any other background activity. 🙂
AppleShare server software and QuickMail client software get along fine, by the way. All permutations except AppleShare Server 3.0 and QuickMail server work fine.
