Links to sites containing server.met files often change and this is why there will be few links in this post. Emule's documentation on server.met files which can be found here offers some different links for these files. Othervise use google to search for "server.met" files.
Regarding links to server.met file there are basically two different kinds. One is the direct link when you click on the link you will be asked where to save the file and the other one is a none direct link to a html page where there is a link to the server.met files. There are some different ways of updating your server.met file. Choose the one you feel most comfortable with:

- On eMule's server button tab there is a place where it says "Update server.met from URL". In the text box you put a direct link to a server.met file and click the "Update" button. A server.met file is now added to your eMule.
- You can find a direct link to a server.met file and download it. The downloaded file has to be placed in eMule's config folder which is often located at C:\Program Files\eMule\Config\. When you are asked to overwrite the existing file you answer yes and your server.met file is now updated.
- This possibility is only valid if you have enabled that eMule can take ED2K links. This is done in eMule's settings -> General and in the buttom of the box. If the "ED2K links" is grayed out eMule is enabled to take ED2K links.
Click on a none direct link and click the "Add to Emule" link and your server.met file is updated.
- The last option is not generally recommended since it causes heavy load on servers but the option to use it exists.
Open eMule's settings -> Server and click the "list" button. This opens the adresses.dat file located in eMule's config folder. Insert a direct link to a server.met file in the text area, save it and close it. Remember to click "Auto update server list on start" and shut down eMule's settings. Everytime you start your eMule from now on a completely new server.met file will be downloaded for you.
