    Mail Server.

    Hi,

    I've to show my project off in college next week. Its an ASP.Net Application. There are a few features that require e-mail. I won't be able to get net access for it as I have to bring my own computer in due to the college being total *****s and not installing the .net frameowrk or anything else required!!!!

    Anyways

    The computer here obviously has IIS and SMTP server. Is it possible to set up the mail server (Localhost) to send e-mails and be able to retreive them from the local host?

    I've no idea about setting the server up so am unsure on if its possible. Its Win2k Pro


    Thanks
    Back Again

    its possible but not with just iis

    (well not on win2k neway, win2k3 can)

    do a search for a program called mailenable - that will work as you want

    but remember to uninstal the smtp server beofre you install mail enable

    As much as "IIS" is Microsofts' web server, "Exchange" is their mail server. It would probably be a bit hard to set up if you havnt done this kind of thing before.

    "MailEnable" is an excellent alternative as suggested by DJ Steve

    IIS has an SMTP server (used to send outside email from exchange as a matter of fact).

    If you have net access to the outside world, you could send email via the local SMTP server then dl it over POP from your ISP.

    Only trick in IIS is to first make sure you have installed smtp services. Second is to make sure you have allowed relay access for localhost.

    Duh Einstein, but read more carefully:

    Question

    Can you tell about "how to config mail enable" on localhost?
    I dont know what's thing to enter when I was asked about domain name and DNS?
    I'm using Apache2.052 and php4.39 with mysql on win2k! And I only want to setup mailserver on LAN, not for Internet!
