SM 15 no longer starts with a reboot
Problem reported by Will Diamond - August 15, 2017 at 4:19 PM

SmarterMail Free 15.7
Windows 10
Configured with IIS Server
 
I have used SmarterMail for many years and have had very few issues.  Recently, SmarterMail does not work after a PC restart.  IIS looks fine, but I get a SmarterMail error trying to logon with a browser on the PC, retrieving mail in Outlook, and my smartphone.  If I right click on the install MSI file and choose Repair everything works fine.
 
Any suggestions?

Hi Will. How long do you wait after a reboot to try and access your mail? I'm asking because I have noticed that sometimes after a reboot, the SM service takes a little while to actually start running even though it shows "started" in the Windows services area.

What do your server logs say, as the reason that SM is not automatically starting?   If they are set to auto-start and doesn't there will be logs reporting that.

THe server rebooted last week for an automatic Windows update. It was up over the weekend before I realized that SM was not running.

Go figure...   I restarted the PC to watch the log files and SM started fine.  First time in a while that has happened.  Guess it fixed itself??
 
Appreciate the responses!
