This is how I personally setup Hmail on Win2K server and using MS Outlook
Step 1: Default install the Hmail server.
Step 2: Bring up the Hmail Administrator
Step 3: Right click on Domain and add your domain http://www.domain.com
[remove www. and what is left
if your domain] Select the Domain is enabled box and leave the Require SMTP Authentication unchecked. SAVE
Step 4: Right click on Accounts and add your account. The account can be pretty much anything
followed by @domain.com. Enter your password and max account size. Select the Account is enabled
button. Unless you know what you are doing do not mark anything in the Active Directory or Filter Tab
on this menu. SAVE
Step 5: Click on the Services menu option and make sure your SMTP and POP3 are running.
Step 6: Double click on Settings menu option an then click on DNS Cache. Select Use hMailServer built-in
DNS cache and leave it set for 4 hours.
Step 7: Double click on SMTP menu option then click on Security. Set Relaying for Relay mail for localhosts
if you are running a webservice. Set Relaying for Never Relay if this is a personal use account. Set Relaying for
local users if your on a private network. These are my best guesses on use as an Hmail rookie. If you select relay
for everyone then then make sure you select Enable ORDB Check from the Open Relay Tab and select Enable
Spamhaus Check from the Spam Tab.
Step 8: Open Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Internet Services Manager. Turn off your Default SMTP
Virtual Server by right clicking on it and selecting 'STOP'.
Step 9: While we are here find HmailServer-POP3 and HmailServer - SMTP and in each one go to the Recovery
Tab and set First and Second Failure to 'Restart the Service'. Set Subsequent failures to 'Reboot the Computer'.
HMail Setup on Outlook
Step 1: From the Tools menu select E-mail Accounts
Step2: Select Add New Email Account. Click on Next
Step 3: Select POP3 Server Type. Click on Next
Step 4: Enter information on E-mail Settings screen
>Your Name - firstname.lastname@example.org
>E-mail Address - email@example.com
>User Name - firstname.lastname@example.org
>Password - 'account password' from your hMail settings
Step 5 Select More settings. Fill in the reply E-mail field. Click on outgoing servce and check My outgoing
server requires authentication and select Use same settings as my incoming mail server. Check the Log on
using Secure Password Authentication box. Finish the setup.
You have to make an MX record with your DNS. Don't do anything fancy such as mail.domain.com etc.
