Install and Configure the Email Server in Windows Server 2003 + Outlook Express

This tutorial will help you to install and set up a few email accounts, by using the built-in POP3 Service in Windows Server 2003. I will assume you have basic knowledge about the Windows Server family and Mail Servers, but I have tried to make this tutorial as easily comprehensible as possible. The tutorial has been tested on Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition but should also work on Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition. I will not cover MX records and other similar things in this release.

To follow this tutorial you need a stand alone server. You can of course use a Domain Controller, but that assumes you understand when to not follow the tutorial and use other settings (i.e. authentication method).

Install the Email Server

You can install the Email Server by using Add or Remove Windows Components or Manage Your Server. In this tutorial we will use the latter, because it’s the quickest way to get this up and running. Manage Your Server is a bit easier to use too, because it will prompt you for the domain you want to use during setup. That will not Add or Remove Windows Components do, and we have to do everything manually.
If it’s not open, start Manage Your Server by clicking Start->Programs->Administrative Tools->Manage Your Server.

  • Click on Add or remove a role.


This will start the Configure Your Server Wizard. Read the text and make sure you have connected all the necessary cables and all the other things it says you should do before continuing.


  • Click Next

The wizard will now detect your network settings. This will take a while depending on how many network connections you have

We now come to the step where we add and remove roles for our server. We will add the Mail Server role. I also suggest that before you click Next, click Read about mail servers because this tutorial is not a complete reference.


  • Click Mail server (POP3, SMTP)
  • Click Next

You will now specify the type of authentication and type the email domain name. In this tutorial we will use Windows Authentication, and I will use my domain name, You should of course use your domain name.


  • Click Next

Next step is to confirm the options you have selected.

  • Click Next

The installation will start, and will also start the Windows Components Wizard. When you get prompted to insert your Windows Server 2003 CD-ROM into your CD-ROM drive, do so. If you didn’t get prompted to do that, you maybe already have it in the drive. Hopefully within some minutes you get this screen:


You can now see the log, click view the next steps for this role, or click Finish. Do whatever you feel you want to do before continuing.

  • Click Finish

You have now successfully installed the mail server, congratulations!
