The process of setting up a mail server under windows2003 is similar to that of an XP system, which can be built with the system's own POP3 and SMTP service, and can be implemented with the help of third party software. The applicable environment is different from the way nature takes. The following author's construction process in these two ways as an example.
I. Use of windows2003 self-band POP3/SMTP service implementation
The first step: Install both services
Windows2003 is not installed by default, we must add it manually. The POP3 service component, under Add/Remove Windows Components-e-mail services, includes two items: POP3 Service and POP3 Service Web management; The SMTP service should select Application Server-internet Information Services-SMTP service in turn For installation, if you need to make remote Web management of the mail server, also select Remote Management (HTML) in the World Wide Web service.
Step Two: Configure the POP3 service
Click "Start-management tools-POP3 Services", open the POP3 Service Main window, then click the host name (native) under POP3 service on the left side of the window, and then select "New Domain" on the right side, and enter the name of the mail server that you want to create in the "Add Domain" dialog box, which is the section behind the @ sure you can.
Then create the mailbox. On the left click on the domain name just built, select "New Mailbox", in the pop-up dialog box to enter the name of the mailbox (that is, the previous part of the @), and set the mailbox password, the final set as shown in Figure 1.
Step three: SMTP Service configuration
Turn on Start-Program-management tools-internet information Services, on the left side of the window, on the SMTP virtual server, right-click the attribute, select the IP address of the mail server in the IP Address drop-down list box under the General tab, and set the maximum number of connections allowed, and then determine.
