Mailserver Note:
You can only use 1 of the 2 mail handlers listed above on a single physical server — you will need to choose between MailEnable or SmarterMail. SmarterMail is our preferred mail handler.

PHP Note:
You can run multiple versions of PHP simultaneously. PHP can also be enabled or disabled on a per-domain (not just per-account) basis.

* Web Edition does not include Active Directory, which is required by Enkompass. If you are configuring a standalone server, you will need to install Standard, Data Center, or Enterprise Edition.
