hMailServer is a small, lightweight mail server with POP3 and SMTP. I have been using it for a while on test or demo systems where I either don’t have access to the company Exchange server or don’t want to use it as the demo system may not be connected to the company network when I am out of the office.
To install hMailServer, download and run the installer.
On the Welcome step, click Next:
Mark the I accept the agreement radio button and click Next:
Accept the default install location or change the path. Click Next:
Choose the features to install and click Next:
Decide if you want a Start menu folder creating and what it should be called (the default is hMailServer). Click Next:
Enter and confirm the password for ther hMailServer admin user, then click Next:
Check the settings on the Ready to Install step and click Install:
Once the installation is complete a password entry prompt will be displayed which will launch the hMailServer Database Setup utility. I’ll cover this utility in the next post in this series.
