Is it possible to run MailEssentials and Exchange 5.5 on the same server? I've tried serveral time to setup the mail relay with little success. Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi,

No, it is not possible to run MailEssentials on the same machine as Exchange 5.5. You would have to either run MailEssentials on a gateway (on a seperate machine), or upgrade your Exchange server to Exchange 2000/2003

YES, it is possible to run on the same machine, actually i have done this almost three years ago .

i assuming you are running on NT 4.0, the mail concern is to change the SMTP service port to other e.g: 26 and let mailessential to take care the port 25.

You should read the manual carefully before the installation.

Good Luck!

Since Mail Essentials needs its own SMTP service to filter/watch SMTP traffic you need to change the TCP port that Exchange Internet Mail Connector is listening on. So If you you need to install MES in the same machine as your Exchange you need to change the IMC port to 26 for example and have your SMTP server relay the inbound SMTP traffic to it's own IP but on different port.
