Whilst users have been excited about the backup and remote access capabilities Windows Home Server brings to the home, many have cited the lack of a mail server as a major weakness of the product. Clearly, the WHS team are aware of the community’s desire for a mail server within Windows Home Server, but this is one area in which the product is differentiated from other Enterprise-focused offerings.
That’s not to say, however, that you can’t run a third-party mail server on WHS. WGS reader Dave Marchant has been successfully running Mercury Mail Server on his home server for sometime. I’m delighted to say he has written a detailed and extensive guide to running Mercury on WHS, which, advanced users can walkthrough to get the software up and running on your home server.
The guide is in PDF format, which you can download.
