How to Install hMailServer MTA on Windows

Verified and Tested 09/18/15

Introduction

HMailserver is a free software that will allow you handle e-mail delivery. MTA, mail transfer agent, is just another name for this process. Since Windows Server 2003, there have not been roles or feature included with the Windows Server operating system to host an MTA, so if you’re looking to run a mail server on a Windows host you need to look at third-party applications, and hMailServer is one of the more popular choices. There are paid versions available, but licensing for them can be very expensive when you can use a free software that can manage multiple domains.

Prerequisite

We will be using a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Datacenter 64-bit. This will also work on Windows 2012 R2 Datacenter 64-bit. Be sure to download the installation files by having the Internet Explorer security changed for the account you are logged in with. You can see a guide on that depending on your OS.
