Confused about Mercury Mail

Postby swoop180570 » 30. June 2006 22:16

Hello everyone,

I have been setting up my own web server with XAMPP and is working fine. (Apache, PHP, MySQL, phpMyAdmin and FileZilla FTP) I have my own company and the www and MX record are pointing to my computer at home.

The only thing I’m confused about is the configuration of the Mercury Mail Server. I need a mail server witch I can use to send email from php with the mail function.

I have been reading some articles about how to setup the Mercury Mail server. On the server setup you must fill in the SMTP server of your ISP. I know my ISP is blocking port 25.
So my question is can I use Mercury Mail to send my email even when this port is blocked and is there a verry good tutorial how to setup the Mercury Mail Server after you have installed XAMPP.

I hope someone can answer my question.
XAMPP is the solution for me

You can use Mercury to send through your ISP's mail server. You need to go to the Configuration menu, and go to Protocol Modules. Make certain that MercuryE is not selected, and MercuryC is. If you change any settings, you will have to exit out of Mercury and restart it. Then, go to the Configuration menu again, and select MercuryC to set it up.

It also wouldn't be a bad idea to go to http://www.pmail.com/ and make sure you have the latest version.

There is also a mailing list for Mercury admins who need help (and a searchable knowledge base). You can find details at http://www.pmail.com/support.htm
