Choose the location where quickSMTP will store all of its work files, like logs, message queues and local mailboxes. This drive must have sufficient space for proper operation.
Choose the network interfaces available on your machine where quickSMTP will be listening for incoming SMTP and POP3 connections. Recommended setting is All available addresses which means that the program will be listening on all IPs that your machine has. In addition you may change the default SMTP Port and POP3 Port should you need to, but it is recommended to leave them as by default – 25 for SMTP and 110 for POP3.
Consoles to open upon start
quickSMTP has various sub-screens (or consoles) that help you to examine its operation. Here you can select which consoles should be open by default when you start the program. You can always open and close consoles when the program is running if you need to.
Select which type of notifications would you like to receive as notifications on your desktop in pop-up baloons.
The service account is a local mailbox with which quickSMTP will identify itself to your users when telling them various things, such as failures of message delivery and other important information. This has to be an existing local mailbox.
In addition, if you enable Automated Commands, quickSMTP will monitor messages coming into this mailbox and if they follow a certain format will execute the commands inside these messages. You can read more about this functionality here.
Start the program minimized
If enabled, quickSMTP will start minimized in your notification tray. If you need to open it, just double click on its icon.
User short dates
Select if you would like to see long dates or short dates throughout the application. Long and short date formats are depenent on your Windows' locale and your individual settings.
