This is an important step in performing a major upgrade that should not be skipped. All configuration data and email will be preserved.

During the installation process, you will be prompted for the installation path. In order to keep the existing data and settings, install to the same path used in previous installs. For reference, the default installation location is C:\Program Files\SmarterTools\SmarterMail.
If you have made any custom configuration changes in the MailService.exe.config, replace those changes to the appropriate location.
The Setup Wizard will automatically run.
If you are running with an activated license key, you will need to reactivate it using a license key that is valid for the upgraded version. For more information regarding activation, refer to: Activate SmarterMail. In some cases you may need to reconfigure your spam settings, as they could change from version to version.
