I had similar issue when we upgraded the ATG level. I realized that our 
business does not require inbound message option. So we are safe with having 
sendmail on unix for smtp, that internally talks to the exchange server. I 
checked the inbound option and there are basically 3 options available to 
access mailbox on exchange- POP, IMAP and RPC over HTTP. Most administrators 
will now move to the 3rd option that is gaining popularity, think this could be 
the case in your setup also. This does mean that you have to wait till oracle 
comes out with support for this.  Alternatively, you could evaluate a pushmail 
(or pullmail) service that supports rpc over HTTP and pushes email from the 
exchange box to the workflow mailer box.  This is kind of similar to blackberry 
service that acts as a middle link between to sides. This does call for good

Hi DBAs,

I have an issue where in i need to configure Workflow Mailer for a new 
Instance. I am able to work with the SMTP but there is no IMAP configured since 
Microsoft Exchange is being used.
Can we have any other way to configure WF-Mailer?
