Virtual Machine Support

NetMailBot is compatible with both VM-Ware and Microsoft Virtual Server/PC and Hyper-V. NetMailBot can be installed on a virtual machine with the above requirements.


1 NetMailBot has passed testing automated testing with tools suppoed by Microsoft
2 Windows may have overriding/higher requirements which take precedence over NetMailBot requirements.
3 NetMailBot has been previously tested to work with the listed operating systems; however, because Microsoft no longer offers mainstream support for these OSs this serves as a heads up that they "should work", but your mileage may vary. Please note: We do not offer support for NetMailBot running on these OSs.
