ME020357 - INF: Can MailEnable be run on a non-server version of Windows, such as Windows 7?


Information on running MailEnable on a non-server verison of Microsoft Windows, such as Windows 7 or Windows 8 with respect to restrictions and licensing.


Whilst current versions of MailEnable's webmail can be run on non-server versions of Microsoft Windows, it is not recommended on the grounds of scalability. IIS is provided as part of non-server operating systems, but may be limited to a maximum of 10 concurrent connections, or will queue connections (with Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8), which may give either error messages, or have it operate a lot slower. Support for MailEnable is only available when running a server version of Microsoft Windows, as there is no formal testing done for client operating systems. 

Note:  Review the Microsoft End User Licensing Agreement and product documentation regarding any limitations of using Windows 7/8 in the capacity of a "Server".
