We will install Davmail version 4.8 on Windows 7. However you are free to install latest version of davmail. Installation steps will remain same for all other versions of windows.

Before we begin

  • Davmail is written in Java and requires JRE for installation. Windows should have latest version of Java installed but in case it's not installed then Davmail setup will install Java during installation . Bottom line is you don't need to install anything manually.
