Uninstall Mercury

Postby crashwave » 05. January 2011 00:27

Mercury is the most useless, buggy, retarded and difficult to learn program I have ever used :evil: . switching to hMailServer lets see how that works. I need to send mail (using phplist or the likes) from my computer as my host only allows 90/hr I have over 100,000 in my list now... do you know what FOREVER means.
How do I get rid of Mercury as it is still showing as port 25? I don't want to just clear the port I want to get rid of it and off the CP and off my computer.
Thanks :D

You can't do anything about the CP as it is hard coded and currently closed source.

You can just delete the mercury folder though.

Good luck :)

Was wondering if someone could help me out with this.
I renamed anything and everything to do with mercury (files and folders named mercury*)
but it is still showing in the ports. is that right (see image) how do I get it off completely?
I installed hmailserver and squirrel and nothing is showing when I go to the mail/ site as instructed here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K99lmchhy2g
any help appreciated. Really need to get these emails out.

xampp-portcheck.exe is a self running archive file and so can be opened in 7-Zip, WinRAR etc.

It contains several files one of which is a Visual Basic Script called checkports.vbs that when viewed in 7-Zip, WinRAR etc. will reveal the Mercury entries you see in the captured shell window you posted above.

It is possible to edit the vbs file but only after extracting the files.
Change all the Mercury entries to hMail or what ever you like then save the file and drag it back into the open archive.

Just edited the vbs and tested it myself and it seems to work fine with Mercury replaced by hMail in the shell window.

Good luck and best wishes. :)
