The application can be installed in multiple modes i.e. Stand-Alone or Client-Server. The stand-alone mode is suited for single machine deployments and the client-server mode is suited for large organizations that want to centralize messaging and install clients on multiple machines. A simple wizard guides you through the setup and configuration of these modes. You can also download the installation manual, which is a step-by-step guide and provides solutions to common installation issues.
