SmarterMail 9.x Help

Running as an IIS Site

By default, SmarterMail installs a basic Web server that allows companies to start using the application immediately after installation. However, SmarterTools recommends moving to a more robust and secure Web server, such as Microsoft IIS. For step-by-step instructions on configuring SmarterMail to run with Microsoft IIS, please refer to the KB article How To - Set up SmarterMail as an IIS Site (IIS 7.0) or How To - Set up SmarterMail as an IIS Site (IIS 6.0).

Alternatively, you may run SmarterMail as a virtual directory under an existing site. However, this is not recommended. For more information, please refer to the KB article How To - Set Up SmarterMail as a Virtual Directory Under an Existing IIS Site (IIS 7.0) or How To - Set Up SmarterMail as a Virtual Directory Under an Existing IIS Site (IIS 6.0).

Note: This help topic assumes familiarity with Microsoft IIS and how it works. SmarterTools recommends using the basic Web server included with SmarterMail if you are unfamiliar with or uncomfortable using Microsoft IIS. It should also be noted that the chat feature will not work with the default Web server.
