Does Smartermail 13.x+ run inside IIS virtual directory?
Question asked by CLEBER SAAD - 5/28/2015 at 7:39 AM

Hello,
 
In older versions of Smartermail it's run in a virtual directory (ex: www.domain.tld/webmail).
 
In the new versions I'd like to know if works because in the URL (inside html) all objects (like css, javascript, etc) point to / always. 
 
Best Regards, Cleber

You should run it as a subdomain.

Thanks Steve, But I'd like to create a domain with SSL. For example: https://webmail.domain.tld/customerX. I older versions works fine, but after v11+ don't work

Not arguing.. but  I have a domain...  mail.DoThis.Com = as an example.
That is the URL used.   But it is pointed to the MRS folder...  
It has own SSL so technically it is: https://mail.DoThis.com
 
That is not a Virtual directory, as defined by IIS.  You could make it a virtual directory, if you want (I guess that is what you are asking?? - under IIS, to where  https://webmail.domain.tld/customerX. ; points to MRS.  
But, If you are doing an SSL . For example: https://webmail.domain.tld/customerX.
Then  webmail.domain.tld  would have to the SSL certificate.  I am not aware under IIS that you only the virtual directory would have SSL.
 
As a footnote.... would be curious how your AppPool is set up, if the SM web is ran a virtual directory.
I would think that you have to define it as a Virtual App not as a Virtual Dir

OK. But the problem it's with Smartermail. All href, img point's to / . So, don't work inside a virtual directory. In older versions works and the new not.

I don't think they would consider this a bug. If it worked in older versions and not now that doesn't mean much as Smartermail was not designed to run under a virtual directory.

Hi Steve. I don't consider a BUG but a QUestion in my Thread.
