Installing Mail Security on a remote server

During remote installation, the Windows Login screen prompts you to provide administrator or domain user credentials. The domain user must fulfill all pre-requisites before the installation of Mail Security on a remote server. See Before you install.

When installation is complete, a Mail Security icon is placed on the computer desktop.

Note:

You should not use the remote installation procedures if you want to install the product on cluster server nodes.

Note:

The Mail Security installation may automatically restart your computer at the end of the installation. If you have selected the Send group settings option, you have to manually deploy the group settings on the remote server after the computer restarts.
