How To Install NoSpamToday! On Your Mail Server (SMTP)
This document explains how to set up NoSpamToday! for Servers on the same machine as your mail server software.
It applies to any mail server software, such as
Microsoft Exchange 5.5/2000/2003/2007
Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS)
Lotus Notes/Domino Server
Quickstart Installation Guide
When you start NoSpamToday! for the first time, the quick start wizard will guide you through
the installation process. The following setup instructions assume that your mail server software
listens on the default SMTP port (25), and that you are installing NoSpamToday! on the same server system.
Launch the NoSpamToday! Admin application on your mail server.
In NoSpamToday!'s Quickstart Wizard, set the Incoming IP to <all interfaces>
and set the Incoming Port Number to 26.
Set Outgoing Server to the internal network address (usually something like 10.x.x.x or 192.168.x.x)
of your mail server and leave the Outgoing Port Number at its default setting (Port 25).
Press the Test button to check if the Outgoing Server is available.
If this fails, your mail server is not running, or it is listening on some other IP address/port.
On the next page, you can configure NoSpamToday!'s Open Relay Protection. At this point you
can just click "Next". You may need this feature later if your setup fail to pass the open relay test.
NoSpamToday! internally runs this test once you have finished setup.
Click through the following pages of the Quickstart Wizard. Usually it is safe to accept the defaults until
you arrive on the NoSpamToday! Admin Mail Options page.
On this page you should enter the IP address or name of your mail server,
an existing recipient address and a descriptive sender address (e.g. nospamtoday@<your-domain.com>).
Activate both the Send Daily Spam Filtering Report and the Send NoSpamToday! Update Information options.
Again, use the test button to test your admin mail settings.
This will make sure that you can receive all admin mail messages from NoSpamToday!.
Complete the Wizard by clicking "Next" and then "Finish". The NoSpamToday! Windows service will
be restarted automatically to put your configuration changes into effect.
If you see a warning message that the open relay test failed, proceed here.
IMPORTANT: Re-configure your firewall/router to redirect incoming SMTP traffic to port 26 (NoSpamToday!'s Incoming Port Number).
