Here are the steps I have taken to move SmarterMail to a new server.
00 - New Server - Running Windows Server 2012 R2, Fully Patched
01 - Old Server - Updated SmarterMail to Build 6928.
No Problems. Worked Great.
02A - New Server - Installed SmarterMail Build 6928, Completes
02B - Problem, Install Process Opens Browser localhost:9998 Fails
Bad Request - Invalid Hostname
HTTP Error 400. The request hostname is invalid.
03 - New Server - Stopped the SmarterMail Server on the New Sever
04 - Old Server - Stopped the SmartMail Service on the New Server
04A - Updated DNS Mail Host to New Server IP Address for SmarterMail
04B - Performed IPCONFIG /FLUSHDNS on the New Server
04C - PINGed each mail host name for each domain served in SmarterMail, success.
05 - Old Server - Created a ZIP file of the Domains folder
06 - Old Server - Created a ZIP file of the SmarterTools folder in Program Files (x86)
07 - Moved copies of the two ZIP files from the Old Server to the New Server
08 - New Server - UnZipped the ZIP files to their proper locations on the New Server
09 - New Server - Started the SmarterMail service on the New Server
10 - Nothing is Working
10A - New Server - Rebooted, No Change
11 - New Server - Ran the SmarterMail IISConfigurationTool.exe
Tool finished without error.
12 - New Server - Uninstalled SmarterMail, Rebooted Server, Installed SmarterMail.

I have moved SmarterMail several times without any issues. Now this.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
