UserGate Mail Server Installation and Removal

Before you install the application, make sure the required server ports (TCP 25, TCP 80 and TCP 443) are not assigned to other applications or services and connection to these ports are allowed by the firewall.
To install UserGate Mail Server, run the setup file and follow the installation wizard's instructions. The installation wizard will prompt you to specify the UserGate Mail Server administrator’s log-in, password, Email address, mail server name and select network interfaces for SMTP, HTTP and HTTPS servers. By default, UserGate Mail Server’s network services monitor all network interfaces available to the server. After installation, the interfaces may be changed on the Services page in the Administrator console. Mail server name will be used for processing incoming and outgoing messages (SMTP, POP3, IMAP) and normally it should be the same as MX record for your mail domain. The default installation folder is “%Program files%\Entensys\CSE” (further referred to as %CSE%). The mail folder is %CSE%\mail.
NOTE! If the UserGate Mail Server is used to process external mail, it is best if the mail server name matches the domain MX record name.
When installation is completed, a special CSETray module's icon will appear in the system tray. You may use the tray agent's pop-up menu to launch and stop UserGate Mail Server modules and monitor their status. The agent’s icon will show an exclamation mark if any of the application’s modules is not running.
UserGate Mail Server is administered from a web-based administrator console at http://localhost or https://localhost.
Unless you have assigned a login and password, the default login will be “Admin” and the default password remains empty. Note that login and password are case-sensitive, i.e. the default system administrator login is Admin, started with capital A.
You may remove UserGate Mail Server from the main menu “Programs — UserGate Mail Server 2.x — Remove or Modify UserGate Mail Server 2.x,” or from “Control Panel – Install and Remove Programs,” or (in Windows 7/2008) from “Control Panel – Programs and Features.”
