SmarterMail 5.x Help
This documentation is for a product that is no longer supported by SmarterTools.


SmarterMail comes as a single installation file that contains everything necessary to run the product. The SmarterMail installer can be downloaded from The free version and the licensed version of SmarterMail are both contained within this installation file, so it will not be necessary to download or install the file again if you purchase a license after trying the free version.

Note: Users of Windows 2003 Advanced Server need to install SmarterMail from Add/Remove Programs in the control panel in order for file permissions to be properly set.

If you have IIS 5.0 or later, it is recommended that you run the SmarterMail web interface under IIS instead of using the built-in web server for performance reasons. See the topic Running as an IIS site for more information.
