SmarterMail’s installation process installs the core files it needs and verifies that the server meets the minimum requirements for it to run. That means it will automatically install any missing pieces for you or update frameworks as needed. Configuring IIS by creating a new app pool and standalone website is also part of the process.
There are times when a System Administrator will need to access domain or user specific information. Impersonation automatically logs in as a user or Domain Administrator, and is a secure method of examining settings or diagnosing problems directly.
SmarterMail contains some of the most comprehensive logging of any mail server. From ActiveSync to XMPP, and everything in between, all logs can be set to the detail level an administrator wants. Administrators can even enable custom logs when working with SmarterTools to dig even deeper into what's going on.
To ensure the security of the mail server and its mailboxes, System Administrators have a number of options for setting specific, minimum requirements for user passwords. These include minimum length requirements, special character requirements and more. In addition, they can prevent common or previously used passwords, automatically expire passwords and more.
System Administrators have the ability to lighten their workload and focus on more important duties by handing off simple, day-to-day tasks to Domain Administrators. For example, things like creating domain aliases or managing spam filter actions can be managed by Domain Administrators, giving System Administrators more time to concentrate on overall server and system management.
Having an extensive API means that admininstrators can automate virtually any function within SmarterMail, from domain creation to on-demand changes to spam and security settings. In addition, as the API is fully documented, third-party developers can build integration modules for SmarterMail. We’ve also created our own modules for some of the leading management applications and control panels that are used by organizations around the world.
