SMTP in Server 2008 Core?

Discussion in 'Server Setup' started by Ed Swindelles, Sep 9, 2008.

  1. Is there anyway to create a Server 2008 Core SMTP server? I don't think
    there is, but confirmation would be nice. I know I can do it in Server 2008
    full, but I'm in need of a dedicated SMTP box and it'd be nice to do it with
    Core. Thanks.

    Interesting quesiton. So SMTP is part of IIS 7.0 and IIS7.0 is a core role.

    Now you may not want all that extra, but it seems like something doable. The
    only thing missing is asp.net

    So, sounds promising, but I don't have anything detailed.

    Did you ever get it to work? I want to create a dedicated SMTP virtual server and I don't need/want a full installation of the OS.

  4. Hi...I suggest you not use the Egghead (or Techarena, etc) forums to access
    the newsgroups.
    The interface doesn't quote properly, and you're replying to a post which is
    no longer on the news server, so it's unlikely that anyone will know what
    you're talking about. Also, "me too" posts don't get much attention - post
    new questions as new threads.

    Try using a news client, such as Forte Agent, Thunderbird, or even Outlook
    Express, instead. It's a lot easier to do nearly everything that way. You
    can mark messages to be watched, filter the views so you can see replies to
    your posts easily, and search.

    The Microsoft public news server is msnews.microsoft.com and you can
    subscribe to as many groups as you like; no authentication is required.
