  • Hey there's a gotcha here..

    Excerpt from this thread @ http://geekswithblogs.net/ferdous/archive/2011/03/15/smtp-setup-for-windows-7.aspx

    SMTP isn't included in Windows 7 by default. But you can install Remote Server Administration Tools that includes SMTP Server Tools for Windows 7. It enables IT administrators to manage roles and features that are installed on remote computers that are running Windows Server 2008 R2 but it can be installed ONLY on computers that are running the Enterprise, Professional, or Ultimate editions of Windows 7.

    Hope this answers your question.

  • I've installed the Remote Administration Tools on my Win7 x64 Ultimate SP1 machine.  I don't see the SMTP service.  This seems to make sense though since the Remote Administration Tools would seem to allow only "remote administration" of servers which have these features installed - the tools themselves wouldn't actually install the SMTP service locally to a Win7 machine.

    It looks like I'll have to use a 3rd party SMTP server.

    Am I missing something?

  • In order to be able to use the tools contained within RSAT (Remote Server Admin Toolkit) you have to first download RSAT from Microsoft and install it. Then, go into Programs and Features in the control panel. Select that you want to add or remove windows components. Then you will notice the toolkit in the list of items and you can check the ones that you have a use for.

  • So it it possible to install this on a consumer-grade Windows 7?  I am not finding any way to make SMTP run on my machine.

  • But how do we install SMTP on the Windows 7 box?  Everyone seems to be posting irrelevant and unhelpful content about how to do remote administration of SMTP from a Windows 7 machine, when the inquiry is about setting up SMTP locally on a non-server machine.

  • Hi,
     
     I want to do the following configuration for SMTP SERVER silenty/using command line parameters.
     
     **************************************************************************************************************
     IIS --> Properties --> Access --> Relay restriction --> Add IP address under Single computer as 127.0.0.1
     **************************************************************************************************************
     
     I got the link to do it interactively, but not silently.

     Can someone help me?

  • The "SMTP E-Mail" feature in the ASP.NET features section on IIS7, is again, just for using an existing server (including a  local one). It has a checkbox for using localhost, but that just tells System.Net.Mail to use the local SMTP server. It does't actually stand one up.

    Use localhost: Sets the name of the SMTP server to LocalHost. Setting the name to LocalHost means that System.Net.Mail will send e-mail to the SMTP server on the local computer.

    For development purposes this could be useful

    Store e-mail in pickup directory - Configures System.Net.Mail to store e-mail messages in a file location on disk for later delivery by an application such as an ASP.NET application, or by a user, such as an administrator

  • I gone through complete post. It is waste of time. Finally no  one answer how to start local smtp server on windows 7.

  • Is this for local development testing? I always use Smtp4Dev for that. I'd advise against setting up your own SMTP service and use SendGrid, AWS or similar services, that way your emails won't be caught in spam filters.
