    Hi guys!

    I've just installed PowerMTA on my Windows Server 2012 but I have no idea how to configure the server itself. I know that I have to make some DNS records and configure the subdomains with IP's but I don't know what to start with and what is the sequence of all actions needed. Can anybody write a sequence of actions for me to configure everything properly. I've found a lot about Linux configuration but nothing was found for Windows version.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well if you are familiar with linux configuration then its very easy for you to configure powermta on windows servers . it is easy to create A records and subdomain but important part is powermta config file.. if you dont have any idea about powermta configuration then it could be hard for you to configure powermta.. config file is same for windows and linux

    Thanks, I know about the dns records, and config file also. But I have no idea how to make a domain and subdomains with IPs on windows server. On linux I always used IPS Manager but here I don't know what to start with...IIS or smth. Can you help with the windows configuration? Thanks.

    First, the host gives you a number of IPs you can use, so that will be a limitation.

    With IIS, you need to create the website and then bind the website (for instance, like http://www.mydomain.com). I think it's right-click the website name and then click "Bindings." Just do a google search for "creating a website in IIS"

    I've found the info on how to set a webserver on IIS.
    1. Do I need any additional role services while installing IIS?

    2. Will the binding port stay 80 or I need 587?

    The last question: Where do I need to put the additional IPs? In the ethernet settings? And if yes, do I need to bind them also or dns A-records on dns server will be enough? Thanks.
