    I need to setup a windows mail server, free. I have tried a few open source programs, like mercury mail, but just cant get it right. I need to have a mail server so I can send mail from my website, also hosted on the same box. I have a domain and I use dyndns.org. I have mail.orphanivy.net an smtp.orphanivy.net an pop.orphanivy.net registered along with www. an ftp.

    Can someone please help me setup a mail server. I just cant do it. Im running win2k server, apache 2.0 an php4/my sql

    I don't know of many free windows mail servers.. you could setup Windows Server 2003, it has built-in mail server...but it's not free.

    why don't you just set up a small *nix box and have that run SMTP. It's free and you don't need a bunch of hardward. a 486 will do fine :)

    the old computer store i used to work for would sell 486 dx2 (sometimes dx4), kb, mouse, 1gb hdd, 14" vga monitor, 40-64mb ram, cdrom for $50.

    and if u buy them in 10+, get them for $40 each, and so on.

    we sold them like hot shit for ppl to use for servers/firewalls.

    i wish i bought one, but i was too busy building them... :hs:
