Switch From SmarterMail Lite to SmarterMail Free Edition

SmarterMail Lite is a specially-developed version of the SmarterMail mail server that provides unlimited email accounts and domains on a single server. It is only available with specific product offerings from SmarterTools technology partners. If SmarterMail detects software from a company that has partnered with SmarterTools to make this edition available, SmarterMail Lite will automatically be enabled on the server.

However, because SmarterMail Lite has a limited feature set, some customers may want to revert to SmarterMail Free edition. NOTE: SmarterMail Free edition has the same functionality as SmarterMail Enterprise, but is limited to one domain with up to 10 users

Applies to SmarterMail 11.x and Higher

SmarterMail Lite edition is not available in these versions.

Applies to SmarterMail 8.x - 10.x

Follow these steps to disable SmarterMail Lite and switch to SmarterMail Free edition:

  1. Log in to SmarterMail as the system administrator.
  2. Click the Settings icon.
  3. Click General Settings in the navigation pane.
  4. Click the Server Info tab.
  5. Uncheck the Enable Lite Mode checkbox.
