"Snippets" are mini-articles - they allow me to very quickly add answers to your frequently asked questions, and add brief explanations for topics that you've searched for without success. So, everytime you send an email or perform a search, chances are a new snippet will be the result!

18 Sep: Running Windows 2000/XP Pro? Use IIS, not PWS!


"I am trying to find a download for installing a PWS for Windows 2000. I have not found anything. Do you suggest anything for me? Any sites for the download? I looked at but could find nothing."


You don't need to use PWS on Windows 2000 or Windows XP Professional - they have the full-strength IIS included. Go to Control Panel, Add/remove programs, Windows components and you'll see an IIS checkbox.

While you're there, highlight IIS and click Details. You can then check SMTP service, and you have CDONTS email!

Note that Windows XP Home should be upgraded to XP Professional - read why.
