SMTP PMXMailer Update for Postmaster!

If you'd like to start sending email secure using port 465 or 587, you need to setup our new PMXMailer. This is a little lightweight utility that runs in the background and basically catches Postmaster and IES outgoing email and changes HOW it's sent without affecting the messages at all.

The trade-off is, normally, a little better deliverability than sending through port 25, a common port used by some spammers.

Also, the PMXMailer is a 'Portable' software utility, so even though we have an installer that insures all the folders, files and registry entries needed are created, technically, it's not 'installing' into the Windows system.

If you're using PMXMailer and your Postmaster is NOT sending email, click here!

If you don't have the New SMTP PMXMailer for Postmaster yet or the lastest version, click here and send me a quick message and we'll get back to you!

Once you download PMXMailer from us, you can simply use the 'installer' that insures all the folders, files and registry entries needed are created, or use the zip bundle and unzip the PMXMailer folder and copy & paste it into a program folder like: (C:\Program Files (x86)\PMXMailer).

PMXMailer is a lightweight 'portable' utility so there is NO Windows installation.

If you have any questions contact us here or call 888-793-2882.

NOTE: This update is still being developed and updated. It works 100% on all Windows platforms with at least Microsoft .NET Framework 4.

The first time you open PMXMailer click on settings.

PMX Mailer Settings

Step 1) The default PMXMailer password is PMXMailer. Be sure to click on the change password link and change it to any password you want. If you forget it, you can reset it to PMXMailer at any time. Important: These are the user name and password to use in your page one of your Postmaster software settings page.

Step 2) Goto Postmaster
settings from the Main Menu and type these in under:
Outgoing Mail Server: localhost
Check the box: Yes my outgoing mail server requires authentication.

Type in the user name and password from step 1 above. Click Next, Next, Yes.

NOTE: This is where you can decide if you want PMXMailer to start with windows. You can also access your mailqueue folder (where email goes as it's prepared to send on to your ISP's mailserver) and view your SMTP log files if you choose to turn those on.

Here's the locations of these assets, assuming your main drive is C:/:
C:\Users\%Username%\Local Settings\PMXMailer1.1

Step 3) These are the settings for the Outgoing Email Server that you use to send email. If you're not sure about any of these parameters, you'll need to ask your ISP (Internet Service Provider) or your Web host. SSL/TLS security normally uses Port 465 that the program defaults to and STARTTLS defaults to Port 587, but can be changed.

Step 4) This is the Message Throttling setting and is not required to use. If you do want to or are required to send only a certain amount of email over a certain timeframe this feature allows YOU to set it up anyway you want! If your ISP limits you to so many email sent per hour or 24 hour period, or if you use Gmail's servers. You can limit to the minute how fast and how much email you send per any number of minutes or per any number of hours!

NOTE: Registry entries are saved here: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PMXMailer1.1

If Your Postmaster Is Not Sending Email...

PMXMailer is a separate lightweight utility and is also portable! This means it does not get installed and runs independent. So, if you're not sure whether it's running you can run the Task Manager and look under 'processes' tab to see if PMXMailer is running. If not, go to your PMXMailer folder inside the PMXMailer Folder and run it. Also you can have it run automatically when you start Windows.

1) To know if PMXMailer is running, open your Task Manager to see or attempt to send your email from Postmaster. If you get error an message like this "10061 The requested connection has been refused by the remote host" it's not running.

2) All you need to do is click the STOP SENDING button to the left and once you see it stop, close the PE Mailer (like you should always do when it's done sending) and then go to your PMXMailer folder and double-click the PMXMailer.exe file, to run it. If you copied it into your
PMXMailer folder it's probably here: C:\program files(x86)\PMXMailer.

3) Finally, go back to Postmaster \ Tools \ Generate&Send and send your email. Because your email was never sent, all your email messages will still be in the 'outbox' untouched.

TIP 1: To make PMXMailer easy to access, right click on it and PIN it to your Taskbar or Start Menu and/or create a shortcut and put it somewhere handy for you. You should do the same with Postmaster.

TIP 2: If you still have trouble sending email, reboot your computer, and try sending your email from Postmaster again.
