    The web mail information in this manual includes configuration and the various server options. For details on using web mail, please check the MailEnable Web Mail User Guide from the MailEnable website.

    Web mail is a mail application that allows clients to send and receive email via the Internet. Once installed, web mail can be accessed from http://exampledomain/mewebmail in place of the exampledomain in this example, use the server name as defined in DNS or under IIS. The IP address of the machine can also be used.  When browsing to this location, a logon screen will be presented.  Users should use the same username and password that the POP service uses. Remember that the username is formatted as: mailboxname@postofficename  -if a default post office has been set using the administration program, there is no need to use the @postofficename after the mailbox name.

    Leveraging Internet Information Services and the Microsoft .Net Framework, the web mail component can provide messaging services via the web browser. Users can access the messages hosted on the server to send and receive email via a web based front end.

    Some of the features of MailEnable web mail include:

    MailEnable web mail is installed as a Virtual Directory under an existing IIS Web Site. Typically there are two web sites that are pre-configured under IIS, these are the Default Web Site and the Administration Web Site. IIS allows additional sites to be created (either using host-headers or additional IP addresses) using the Internet Services Manager. MailEnable will also create a MailEnable website for host headers that are created via the administration console. The website is named MailEnable Webmail. More information can found in Publishing via host headers or virtual directories
