Hi

You should understand at this point that Mercury Mail is an add-on in the form of an executable. The XAMPP developers only basically configured it to work. IF there is a memory leak - its embedded in the complied code. Changing some configuration value (parameter) may change how the code works - but it doesn't change the code - its still a workaround. :shock:

This topic here may help you -

It contains a couple of straight forward ideas - including what I do for other reasons with XAMPP - using scheduled NET start and stop commands for the service.

Google is your friend

BTW - you don't HAVE to use Mercury - Mailservers are truly free-standing services. You might like Hmail - it is free, excellent and I have used it for years on XP and Server 2003 without a snag.
