How to Setup hMailServer Email Server in Azure

To set up hMail server in Azure, simply deploy the hMailServer straight from the Azure marketplace:

 

Setup hMail Server to Azure

 

 

 

Configuration Guide

Login Credentials

 

hMail User: administrator

password: blank, no password is set.

In previous marketplace image versions, password is: 123456

 

Reset hMail Administrator Password

 

To reset the hMail administrator password, edit the following file: C:\Program Files (x86)\hMailServer\Bin\hMailServer.ini

 

In the hMailServer.ini in section

 

[Security]
AdministratorPassword=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

 

This is NOT a Blowfish or SHA Algorithm. It is really an encrypted MD5 Hash.

 

To reset your Administrator password do the following:

 

1) Stop the hMailServer Service
2) Goto your hMailServer Program folder (for example: c:\Program Files (x86)\bin\
3) Copy or make a Backup of your original hMailServer.ini file
4) Insert a new MD5 Hash and replace the old password with a new password.

 

This should look like this:
AdministratorPassword=cc03e747a6afbbcbf8be7668acfebee5

 

5) Open hMailAdmin and click connect, this will start the hMailServer and provide the password box

 

Your new Admin login password is: letmein

 

You can generate a MD5 Hash from some other password anytime for example at:
http://www.md5.cz/
