KB07113001 Installation tips
The page below is served in place of the Console Installation-page during a standard 30-day Trial
When the trial period is over, and a license has been purchased, the "evaluating" Mailtraq page is replaced with an informative page (see right) drawn from your online account at https://my.mailtraq.com
You can manage your license online from your account - including changing contact details, increasing the license size and renewing your support and upgrade protection.
Mailtraq is fully compatible with Windows XP and above.
