This System Administartor Guide is aimed at administrators of the INSEM
Local Server (ILS) electronic mail system. This software is used to exchange
messages and electronic documents between colleagues within the European
Commission. Connectivity to external bodies is also provided via special
gateways.
System Administrators are guided through the tasks required to install, update
and maintain the software so that optimum service is offered to all users of the
system. If further technical information is needed, the INSEM System
Reference Manual should be consulted.
It is assumed that all the administrator is conversant with Unix and the basics
of INSEM use as described in the User Guide for INSEM (ILS Release 3.1).
The administrator will also require sufficient knowledge of Teletex, X.25,
LAN protocol and UUCP in order to establish and monitor the interface
between these protocols and INSEM. See Related Documentation for a list of
the documents that provide peripheral information to that contained in this
manual.

Introduction to INSEM
1.1 What is INSEM?
The INSEM (INSIS Electronic mail) software package provides an electronic
mail service to users within the European Commission. Users can
communicate with colleagues within their own institution, in other institutions
or with external partners.
INSEM is a distributed system and thus requires administration on each of the
machines on which it is installed.
The INSEM server is based on the client-server model. Each local subdomain
will have the server software installed on at least one computer. This takes
care of routing mail between users whether they be a client of the local system
or a remote system. Each users runs an interface program called a
correspondent, which is responsible for delivering mail to and receiving mail
from the local server.
There are two types of user of the software. The normal user has limited
functionality in the menu-driven user interface, being presented with only the
options to send and receive files and to access the alias and mailing list tables.
The second type of user is the mail administrator - you. This user has a special
account called ehadmin from where all the system tables and administrative
functions can be performed.
The INSEM software can transfer files between Unix machines using either
the Teletex or UUCP protocols. The preferred method is Teletex, but if a
machine does not have this installed then UUCP is to be used. The LSA is
responsible for setting the communication protocol for each machine using the
table Local Computers. The selection ofl is transparent to the user.
Figure 1 shows a conceptual overview of INSEM.
Version 1.0 Pagel Introduction to INSEM
This manual mainly describes the installation and administration of the
software on the local server, reflecting the fact that the correspondent
programs are much simpler to install and administrate. However, reference is
made to the correspondent programs where necessary.
