Hi all,
I installed the hMailServer.
I need information on how to configure a mail client with all settings to connect to this hMailServer.
I don't have any domain as of now. Is there any possibility to create our own domain like something.com
Anyone can provide the information please.

Still Iam a novice user to this, so can you help me out.

In your email client, add a new account. Enter the following information:

* Hostname - The host name or IP address of the computer where hMailServer runs
* Username - Your full email address. Same as the account address you added in hMailServer Administrator.
* Password - The password you defined in hMailServer Administrator

How to add a new account depends on what email client you are using. For details, you should check the documentation for your email client.

Iam having Microsoft Outlook.
So how to configure on Outlook.

And, my main intension using this hMailServer is : I have to send a mail from one account to another account on two different machines which are not connected to Internet but connected in a LAN, both accounts are the accounts of hMailServer only.
For this situation, can I create my own domain like kalyan.com and can I creat two accounts like a@kalyan.com and b@kalyan.com.
Then how to send a mail from a@kalyan.com to b@kalyan.com in MS Outlook.
For this what are all the steps required to configure and send a mail.

Thanks in advance
Kalyan

Hi,
You need to read the documentation for your email client. Your email client documentation describes how to add new accounts.

The problem isnt configure a regular e-mail account, everybody knows do that, the issue is like to configure it locally.

I didnt found like to do it with outlook express.

With SquirrelMail it (hms) works fine

when I was reading the changelog for the COM API for 4.3 I came across a setting called DefaultDomain (DefaultDomain - Domain to use if domain has not been specified when user logs on).

So I guess that this is also available in the hMailAdmin interface and as long as you are only expecting users of a single domain to be able to configure using account name only then this would do it for you.

I haven't upgraded to 4.3 yet as I have a few scripts to fix first so I can't test it but I bet someone else could test it for you, be a really quick test!
