When the XCP sets the service it does not, for some unknown buggy reason, include the mercury
part - C:\xampp\service.exe mercury
You can add it manually after exiting the XCP by going to the Services interface from the start>Administrative Tools>Services and look for XAMPP Service
Right click and select Properties.
Look for the box Start parameters
and add mercury
Then Start the service - but XCP will stop after doing it saying it has nothing to do - again ???
Check that the service is set to Automatic and it should load mmc.exe
at boot, which you can check also.
Check using Task Manager that mmc.exe
is running - that is the best I can suggest other than using the hMailServer
of course and any clues from the pMail forums.
