Is it possbile to set up SmarterMail on a droplet ?

  • Posted February 19, 2014

Hello guys,

I have a client that is insistent on retaining their current email application, SmarterMail, but the problem is the application requirements:

SmarterMail was desgined to coexist with multiple applications on the same server based on the following minimum requirements: Windows XP*, Windows Vista*, Windows Server 2003 or higher SmarterMail Web server included with product Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework

However, SmarterTools recommends the following requirements for maximum efficiency: Windows Server 2003 or higher Microsoft IIS 7.0** Microsoft .NET 4.0 Framework

I know your servers run on non Windows based OS’s, I am reluctant to switch or find an alternative provider as I have dealt with a number of hosts and I am really happy with your service.

Please do let me know, or of my possible alternatives.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thank you.

Thanks Ricardo. <br> <br>Guess I have no alternative.

It seems that SmarterMail only runs on Windows and there’s no option other than looking for a Windows Cloud Hosting provider.
