    Has anyone tried any other solutions for voice mail to email other than Microsoft Exchange server or IIs. I have my system running on windows 7 without a true server and wondered if anyone has a solution. Even kevin himself logged into our system and tried to set us up with his gmail smtp server I think it was smtp.gmail.com. I am not for sure on that but I would love some feedback on this.

    I appreciate the replies but I think fundamentally I don't understand the configuration. Can you advise on some of the details. Here is what I have so far.
    3cx on windows 7
    hmailserver
    Not sure about the domain thing we use homestead and godaddy for websites
    any advice!
    thanks

    Sending through a GroupWise server.

    One thing to look at is your AntiVirus. Remove it while testing. Many Anti-virus programs prevent programs from using port 25.

    hmailserver is good choice for a free/reliable smtp, but consider that you'll need your own domain so you can create an SPF record and also a reverse DNS from your ISP, otherwise your emails may not reach the recipients. Using a third party SMTP server eliminates the need to control your own DNS records, but it may cost you.

    It is possible to use gmail according to posts in the forum (search for it), but needs extra settings for TLS/SSL in your Windows OS below the 3CX server.
