Email services in WS2008

Recommended Posts

In WS2003 there was a pop3 email service that you could use (not part of IIS). I cant find this service in WS2008 - has it been removed or have i missed it somewhere?

It was removed in Server 2008 completely, you didn't miss it. I'm not sure why this was done, but I'm guessing it cannibalized sales of Exchange. I can't think of any other reason.

Ohhhh :realmad: this feature was very useful. Any other freebies of such sort around? and how does IIS SMTP work in terms of sending emails (internally only)

Thanks

It's only a relay, so you still need a mail server. There are free ones I can think of, but I've always used a linux box for a quick and dirty mailserver when Exchange wasn't required (I usually use Open Xchange in this scenario if I have the hardware).

I have not used it personally, but it has been mentioned to me on more than one occassion. The only reason I haven't tried it yet is that I haven't had the need to. The feature list is pretty extensive though. The free version only allows one domain but that's all most people need.
