Can somebody help me in installing bugzilla (list out exact steps if possible) on Windows Server 2008 with IIS 7.0 , Mysql 5.1 & existing email server(already configured)? I followed installation steps from many posts & also your site , everything goes right but when I start to creating accounts by sending email in bugzilla web panel, I get error:- “There was an error sending mail from 'bugzilla-daemon@' to '':Can't call method "address" on an undefined value at C:/Program Files (x86)/Bugzilla/perl/perl/site/lib/Email/Send/ line 25.”

I also tried installing through Windows installer, but same issues.

Please any help would be appreciated.

Expecting quick response.

You need to set a valid email address for your bugzilla-daemon. Please see the data/params file, or visit edit_params.cgi to set the FROM address for bugzilla.
