MailEnable is an e-mail server distributed by MailEnable Pty based on Windows. The features of MailEnable include support for IMAP, POP3 and SMTP email protocols, with the support of SSL / TLS and the list server. The management functionality can be used by the Microsoft Management Console or the browser. The functionality of MailEnables can be implemented by using MMAP.


Before we begin

  1. The user should have admin access to the server.
  2. The server should be connected to the internet.
  3. IIS Manager should be installed on the server.

Step 1: Firstly, login to the server using RDP and download the Mailenable setup file using the link. Mailenable usually offers two products: one is open source and the other is license-based. Please have a look at the screenshot for your reference.

STEP 2: After successfully downloading the setup file, We have to initiate the installation process. We have to execute the downloaded setup file as given in the screenshot below.

Step 3: While executing the setup file, we will get the prompt as below. We need to click on "OK.”
