Create a new .MSC file

  1. Start | Run | Type: MMC | Press Enter
  2. From the 'File' menu select 'Add/Remove Snap-in...'
  3. Select 'PureMessage Administration Console' and click 'Add >'
  4. In the 'Select server' dialogue box select 'Local Computer' then click 'OK' then 'OK' again
  5. The PureMessage console will now be displayed, from the 'File' menu select 'Save As...'
  6. Enter the 'File name:' as PureMessage.msc and set the 'Save in:' location to 'Desktop' then click 'Save'
