Installing an e-Mail Server on Windows Home Server

I hear the question all the time. “Why doesn’t Windows Home Server have an e-Mail Server included?”

The answer is simple: Because it ain’t easy to do.

Well, let me clarify that. It’s EASY to install and run e-Mail Server software on Windows Home Server. It’s not so easy to get it to work with your ISP, connection, firewall and clients.

Here’s a quick guide 

Most ISPs use Dynamic IP addresses for customer internet access. This means your address could keep changing. That makes running a mail server tricky, imagine if your street address kept changing and your friends were constantly trying to find you. You can use the FREE DynDNS service to update your address any time it may change.
