I have a win2000 server where i host 10 sites.  I would like to set up email accounts for each (info@domain1.com, info@domain2.com... etc).

Is there a built in mailserver? If so could someone point me to a online tutorial... i tried googling it but didnt get any helpful results.

If there isnt a built in mailserver... or i shouldnt use it for any reason, can you recommend a mail server that is easy to install and configure.

Thanks

No not really What90. The build in SMTP feature of IIS can only send e-mail, it will not give you an e-mail address. The only thing you can do is install Exchange Server 2000. It works really good, but it will cost ya a bit. First of all, $ 1000 for Exchange, and you need a Client Access License (CAL) for every mailbox, and it costs about $ 70...

You also have free e-mail server, but then you will have to use Linux... And i don't like Linux...But it is on this link...

rhandels,


I'd suggest that if zeil wants a free option then either he uses anyone of the free SMTP mail servers at the bottom of my first link or he setups up mail clients (Outlook, Outlook Express etc) and then use the IIS server as a simple relay. That way he should be able to have a funtional, abit, very limited, mail server.

Ms have put out an number of links about it can only send, but links like ewtaylor's suggest differently. If you have a definitive link I'd be most interested in see it !

zeil,

another free SMTP server is http://www1.sica.com/ims/#W2FIX called IMS - this is supported by the open source community and has a lot of docs on how to set it up.
