When installing the Exchange Server Toolbox on this machine for the first time, you should leave this option checked. It will train the Bayes Filter of the integrated SpamAssassin with a database. If you already have a Bayes Filter that has been trained by usage you should uncheck this option. Otherwise this will reset your Bayes Filter.





Please wait until the Exchange Server Toolbox has been installed. A second window will open afterwards.





Here you can add any email or IP addresses that should be treated as sending incoming email. The option "Automatically add gateways to list" adds all IP addresses of the current machine to this list. You can always change the addresses later unter Settings | Advanced | Mail direction.

Under "Mailserver connection" add the connection information for your Exchange server. Under "Error reporting" you can add the email address that error messages will be sent to. You can change this email under Settings | Advanced | Mail delivery.





If there is no Exchange server or hMail server installed on your machine or if the Exchange server connection information was faulty you will see this dialogue. Pause the setup here to install one of the supported Exchange servers or select "hMail" and press "Next" to install an hMail server in the next step.





Enter the login information for the hMail server.





If there is an Exchange Server installed on the machine the selection will look like this. Press "Next".





Select the Active Directory user you want to install the Exchange Server Toolbox with. Alternatively, you can create a new user. The user you select will automatically gain full acess to the Exchange Server Toolbox archive.

Please wait a moment after the server connection has been established. The installation will continue automatically.
