Windows Service

Jul 27, 2009 at 10:46 PM

I love this application, I would just like to see the ability for it to run as a windows service and spool the emails to a directory with maybe some cleanup aka keep the last 500 emails.


Thank you for putting this together

Voting for exactly the same feature(s) :)

We have a need for running this as a service as well.  Perhaps we could tag team this?  It looks like you've done an excellent job of separating the server components from the UI so this shouldn't be difficult.

count another vote for this. By the way, isn't somewhere a temp folder where the program dumps the mails?

I also want to use this very usefull tool as a service. As it can run all the time on a test application server without being logged on all the time.

Is this feature planned to be implemented in the (near) future?

Thanks for this application, it is the best of several alternatives I have tried.  Like the other posters in this thread, I would love the ability to run as a service!

SMTP4DEV is a great application that makes my life as a Software Developer much easier.  I would also like to have the abililty to run this application as a Windows service so that I can have it running 24/7 on our development and test server environments

Another request for this...

for this, would a change be required in smtp4dev ?

I think not.

On windows, I think srvany.exe can be used.

(srvany.exe ... to configure any executable as a windows service, comes with the Microsoft Resource Kit tools)
