Continued from IIS
5.1 - The FTP Server Configuration
The SMTP service. In
Internet Information Services, click on "Default SMTP Virtual Server" to
see the status of your FTP server.
Email! Before the email
will work correctly, we must setup a few things.
Click on "Default SMTP Virtual
Server" and then click on "Domains". Right click on "Domains" and
select "New" -> "Domain"
A wizard pops up and then
you should click on "Alias" then "Next".
Type in the domain name that
the email server should respond to. In my case, it's "dslwebserver.com".
Right click on "Default SMTP
Virtual Server" then select "Properties". Most of these functions
depend on what your needs are. You can simply experiment with the
settings and keep sending email to yourself to see if the changes work
You may have to play with the
"Relay" settings to allow computers on your network to use the SMTP server
to relay mail out. Make sure you check these settings carefully since
you don't want to be an open relay for spam.
Tab: LDAP Routing
All your email gets send
to c:\Inetpub\mailroot\Drop. You can make a shortcut on your desktop
to this directory to read your email.
This guide just showed you
how to get the site up and running, but you will have to spend time exploring
the different options to get the Internet Service to do what you want it
