Enter the hMailServer password created during the installation and click OK:

Click the Accounts node in the navigation pane and then the Add button:

Enter the Address and select an Administration level:

Click Save and then on the Advanced tab. Enter the First name and the Last name and then click on Save:

Repeat the above for the user accounts you need; include one for use as a catch-all.

Once done click back on the Domain node in the navigation pane and select the Advanced tab in the detail pane.

Enter the Catch-all address and click Save:

Expand Settings, Protocols and click on SMTP. Select the Delivery of e-mail tab and enter the Local host name:

hMailServer Administrator: SMTP

Click Save.

And that completes the setup of hMailServer as I do it for demo and test systems. The only other step is to configure the email accounts in your mail client of choice; which in my case is Microsoft Outlook, which I will cover in the next post.
