New MAIL Broadcast Messages?

» close window

The Question is:

If I log in a VMS node using eXcursion (V.7.1) I don't receive new VMS mail
 notifications anymore. If I log in using DECnet I get the notifications. What
 is the work arround?

The Answer is :

  Notifications of new MAIL are entirely clueless as to the type of
  network transport used to access OpenVMS, look for differences in
  the explicit (eg: via SYLOGIN or LOGIN) or the default settings
  (eg: via the default terminal system parameter settings) for
  broadcast classes (eg: SHOW BROADCAST) and look at the terminal
  broadcast (eg: SET TERMINAL/BROADCAST) setting.
