Need Help With IIS/FTP/SMTP
New to webhosting have some questions

 4:21 am on Sep 1, 2001 (gmt 0)

I've been writing websites for years, now I am starting to host the sites I design. W2000 is up, IIS is up, I can setup multiple sites with my one IP no problem.

I can't figure out how to give FTP access to each site individually - IIS does host headers for web sites, but not for FTP.

Also, I need to provide name@domain.com mail service for my clients.

Is there a really good book for this? Or will someone be willing to help me directly over the weekend?

Hi David: welcome to the forums here at WW.com.

The Mercur Product is an SMTP as well as POP 3 server.

I disabled the Microsoft SMTP service in order to use Mercur. It's much easier to set up accounts across multiple domains than Microsoft.

You can find it at www.atruim-software.com

I am administrating webhosting for my boss for 1 year now and started from knowing nothing.
I run IIS 5 on w2k and the problem with directing users to there respective folders is to have good security settings.
You'll have to make an NT user for every site and grand permissions to its own directory and nowhere else ;)
In iis you'll make an virtual dir on your ftp server ( I use only one ftp site) with the exact name as the NT account and path to it's own dir so as one logs on he will be directed to his own directory immediately. If one logs in wrong or without permission he will be guided to the home dir of the ftp server and not to any virtual dir. I do not use active directory is one mentioned before to use the home dir option. So I solved it this way.
For mail I use Imail from IPswitch.com it has webmail calendering(from version 7.0) smtp and is not expensive for the unlimited users version.
