WindMail v2.0 FAQ Page


     Q: What is the latest version of WindMail?

     A: Currently, the latest version available is 2.0.

        Upgrades from 1.xx are available for $39.00

     Q: How do I copy a registered version of WindMail over an

        evaluation copy?

     A: Just copy over the demo windmail.exe with the registered

        copy of windmail.exe sent to you. From the command-line try

        to run "windmail -v". That should provide you with the version

        and the registered status (demo or registered). You will

        need to make sure that you copy over all the copies of WindMail

        that you use. To find them all, you can go to the Start ->

        Find -> and search for "windmail.exe". Its quite possible

        that you're executing another copy you've made if you still

        see an indication that there are only xxxx number of uses left

        for the evaluation copy

     Q: CGI returns "WindMail v2.0 mailer for WIN32 (95/NT)

        (### evaluation uses left)..." instead of my output.

        banner messages. If you are testing WindMail, follow this easy

        "NUL". Here is an example: "windmail -t >NUL".

     Q: Perl Script or C/C++ program hangs when I call the WindMail


     A: Be sure to send WindMail a period on its own line. In Perl:

        print MAIL "\n.\n" or in C: fprintf(mail, "\n.\n"");

     Q: I am receiving an error message regarding my mail server

       "Server (mailhost) could not be found".

     A: Either your WindMail.INI is not set up, is not set up correctly,

        or cannot be found by WindMail. This problem should happen less

        frequently after version 1.50 because WindMail now seeks out a


     Q: WindMail appears to lock up, but I can still press Ctl-C and exit?

     A: This is normal, you need to enter a message in the following form:
