How to activate SmarterMail license?

Normally, you would not need to activate SmarterMail license at your end because we deliver Windows VPS with pre-activated SmarterMail license. Though you would find this article quite helpful when you upgrade SmarterMail edition to EnterPrise.

To activate the SmarterMail license, you would need the license key and Activation details. You must have received an email which contains the license details when we assigned a SmarterTools bundle to your billing email address. If you lost that email, you can obtain the details by login to SmarterTools portal. If you do not recall the SmarterTools portal login details, you will need to reset the password by clicking on Reset Password link.
