Hi Alain and Welcome to the Forum.

Right now you need to know that hMailServer is not directly designed to be used on WAN Networks like the Internet or a Company Intranet/Extranet. Remote connections (for Administration and API-Script's) can only be made possible by using something like a SSH-Tunnel or a VPN-Software and static routing to your hMailServer Machine. For example you can use something like the Linux Subsystem for Windows or Cygwin to install a SSH-Server Software on your hMailServer Computer
and tunnel the Windows COM/DCOM connections between your hMailServer Server Computer and your Windows Remote Client-Computer to archive something you asked for.

A while ago i made a Guide/Tutorial how to access a hMailServer via a SSH-Tunnel connection, which you can find here:viewtopic.php?f=21&t=33559
