    Hi Gunwant

    I’m not very sure about the difference between the Simple Mail TRANSFER Protocol and Simple Mail TRANSPORT Protocol. The articles which I read on Simple Mail TRA NSPORT protocol, looks like, they refer to Simple mail TRANSFER Protocol (installation and uninstallation also). Can you tell me where exactly you found the two services in Windows so that I can look for more information on the same.

    Regards

  • Hi Gayathri,


    One was on Windows Xp and one was on Windows server 2003

    I think was TRANSPORT on XP and TRANSFER on

    But not on all boxes.


    Thanks
