The installation is easy. Even if you are a newbie in Linux there is not much room for errors. However, a basic knowledge in email routing and traffic is required.

Estimated time: 30 minutes.

A simpler alternative to this article for Windows admins is to use the customized ISO image (recommended)

Watch a video on how to install using ISO image

      Make sure you provide valid network settings in order to connect to the Internet during installation. 

      Do not attempt to install on an existing system. You cannot have multiple postfix, spamassassin, clamav instances.
      Deploy Scrollout F1 on a fresh Debian system.

    1. Download Debian 8 Server

    Again, make sure your internet connection is working properly and type the following commands:

    sudo –i
    cd /tmp
    wget -O scrolloutf1.tar
    tar -xvf scrolloutf1.tar
    chmod 755 /tmp/scrolloutf1/www/bin/*
