MailEnable Enterprise Guide
Mailbox - Addresses
Administration > Mailbox configuration > Mailbox - Addresses

When creating a mailbox, email addresses are created for all the domains available in the post office. For instance, for the domain mailenable.com, if a mailbox called ‘sales’ was created, the email address sales@mailenable.com would be automatically created.

To create new email addresses, selecting the Addresses tab at the top of the mailbox properties window. A list of the current email addresses will be shown.

In order to add another email address for this mailbox, click the Add Email button. The first text box, Enter email name is where the first part of the email address is entered. E.g. to add sales@mailenable.com, only requires the word sales to be entered.  The full address of the email being added is displayed in the window.

The Available Domains list box in this window lists domains that are entered via the Create Domain icon. MailEnable can only add email addresses for the available domains in each post office account. For the purpose of this guide we have entered only one domain. In cases where there is more than one domain in a client’s post office account, these domains will appear in this list box. It is then possible to select the appropriate and then entering the email name that is required. Select OK on the Add Emails window when the address has been entered. It will now appear in the mappings list.

Select OK on the Mailbox Properties window as your mailbox has now been configured
