From your hMailAdministrator Interface

If you have any questions or comments, please visit our forums.  You will be able to find help or offer suggestions.  Also, the fine folks over at WeGotServed.co.uk are a great resource for help.

Note: You don’t have to be running Windows Home Server for this to work.  This will work with any current version of Windows.  You can use a DynDNS account also instead.  Sign up for Dynamic DNS at dyndns.org and use that as your domain address in your mailserver.  Most routers support updating your dynDNS.org address automatically; if yours doesn’t, download the updater for free from their site.

    "Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible cause for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account '***.mydomain.com', server 'mydomain.com', Protocol: POP3, Port 110, Secure(SSL): No, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F.

  6. Just checking, is this article still relevant one year later? Someone pointed me here but it’s a bit old.

  7. I’ve obtained my domain at homeserver.com. However, there is no MX record for it (All mails sent to the address were failed). How do I add the MX record via WHS? Thanks!

  8. How do one access the emails thru outlook???? or even set up webmail… i have installed hmailserver and it all very well, it even says i have a message but what the point of it if i can’t read it??????

    • I will eventually write a tutorial on setting up outlook, mail, or outlook express to get mail from your hmailserver. The easiest way to explain for now is to use your servers, ip address or given homeservername as the smtp and pop server.

  9. Hey. The download link appears to not be working. It just redirects to this page again. ANy suggestions?
