Hi,

After installing power MTA we tried to start the service using start command in command prompt but it wont start. Currently we are manually going and starting the service.Is there any other better way to do this?

Thanks.

(flying blind here)
Maybe the web interface is available?

If you run a command via the web interface you receive a error message when something is wrong.
I've never did the PMTA instalation so I do not know if the webinterface is the same proces.
It worth trying :)

If you are running windows, PMTA installs a service which you can start and set to start when the OS loads. You can also use the command prompt is that is easier for you "net start pmta"

Try the last command in my signature and review the last error of the output.
