Running as a Windows Docker Container

Post by gp! » 2020-08-01 22:53

I found this post: https://www.hmailserver.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=33024

Curious now that Docker supports Windows with Windows based containers - is there any sort of container image for deploying hMailServer?

Interesting concept - I'll look into that

Having a quick look today, you need an enterprise version of docker to run up a windows system (on Server 2016), which costs almost a $1000 per annum.

Probably not going to be implemented by hMailserver anytime soon I'd guess

I run windows docker on hyper-v server 2019 (free) with a continer of iis 7 on server 2019. (also free)

To setup using servercore hMailserver you must install without GUI with only CMD or powershell.
