Question

I want to move GMS Mail from one drive to another, on the same machine, without losing my settings or email.

Answer

These instructions relate to VERSION 3 of Gordano products ONLY ? see KB133 for details of how to move version 4 and later.

1. Stop the services with the button on the Services page of the CPL or use the mail -stop command.

2. Go to the old drive and uninstall the services by typing:
SMTP -u
POP -u
POST -u

3. Create the new GMS Mail directories on the new drive and copy all the files from the old drive.

4. Re-install the services with:
SMTP -i
POP -i
POST -i

5. Go to the registry editor (e.g. REGEDT32) and select and change the following value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/InternetShopper/Mail/Parameters/BaseDir
to the new base directory for GMS Mail.

6. Start the services from the Services page of the CPL or enter the mail -start command.

GMS Mail is now installed on the new drive and no information from your setup will be lost.
