Thus, I formed the following "request package": I needed something easy (both in terms of system resource appetites as well as learning curve), preferably for Windows, not for server versions, but for regular Windows XP. Besides, I hated the idea of messing with questionable ways to force licensed software (usually called "cracks & keygens") to run. Thus, my choice was limited to freeware (or at least inexpensive) software, so that I could legalize it normally, as required by the developer. The title of this article is a hint to you that I found what I had looked for. Everything below is actually my story about "how good I felt after I found IT". This story (from the point of view of networking gurus) will certainly seem amateurish. I don't object to it! That's a story of an amateur, who found a solution. But the tool discovered was so convenient (for me the amateur) that I decided to write about it (for users of the same level). Perhaps, they will also like it :).
Below I will describe the key features of this suite in the order this program offers to configure itself. So, this article is actually devoted to the configuration (and also to the feature overview) of this suite.
Certification tab in the free version of the suite is not available, it works only in LAN SUITE Anti-virus Edition. However, this procedure only allows to add an antivirus status to each incoming and/or outgoing message. Considering that many viruses can fake similar status reports, benefits from email certification seem quite questionable to me...
LAN SUITE offers this feature as well (considering the intention to create an all-in-one suite, as well as integrated POP3 and SMTP servers, it would have been strange not to have it). You can get local access to web mail by typing the following address in your browser: . In case of remote access, you should replace it with a real IP. You will see a window prompting for your user name and password. Then you'll get access to your mail box. As any web mail, Web Mail from LAN SUITE is certainly inferior to stand-alone email clients in usability. But you can quickly browse your email box on a computer without an email client, or, for example, (in case of "white" IP) read your email from any internet cafe. It's hardly a disadvantage, is it?
You can run the program in usual mode (like any other EXE file) or LAN SUITE can be installed as a system service. But I must warn you: you should do it only after you have completely configured the program. The problem is you cannot open the program window (and thus get access to its settings), if LAN SUITE is started as a system service. An attempt to start lansuite.exe, when the service is already running, results in a displaying a diagnostic message that the service is already running. Thus, you'll have to use web interface to change settings (even locally), which is not always convenient. Besides, the main window contains a very useful option - collect POP3 mailboxes and send Internet messages. As I have already written, immediate send is not very useful, as emails are sent rather quickly anyway. But getting new messages from all external mail boxes without waiting for the next scheduled reception may come in handy. 2b1af7f3a8
