MailEnable Features - Administration
MailEnable contains powerful administration features which can be easily administered through a user-friendly
interface (Microsoft Management Console). The interface allows you access to all of the features of MailEnable
including configuration details, services, filters, mailboxes etc.
Remote administration allows you to connect to a remote machine or cluster via the administration interface.
You can then add these remote servers to the administration program for ease of access, and manage them in the
same way as your local machines.
Web Administration is an additional feature available in Professional and Enterprise Editions of MailEnable
that provides an interface to allow you to manage various services remotely via a web browser.

MailEnable - Alerting & Monitoring
System Alerting & Monitoring
MailEnable includes a monitoring agent that checks system health and can notify an email address of any problems that are detected,
such as a large amount of email going through the system, or service failure.
Monitoring tools are also provided which allow you to easily review the status of the messaging subsystem. You can
access the system overview console and can review which accounts are generating the most activity. This allows administrators to identify any
accounts that are being abused and to take an appropriate action.
Integrated Global Footers/Disclaimers
System and Post Office Administrators are now able to add global or Post Office footers to messages as they are sent to external parties.
Mailboxes which are administrators are able to configure this through Web Administration
MailEnable - Footers/Disclaimers
MailEnable - Priority & Bulk Email Queues
Messages that are sent out as bulk e-mail or are part of an e-mail campaign can now be assigned to a bulk mail queue.
This means that bulk mail outs are less likely to impact on the delivery of regular e-mail.
Also, an administrator is able to designate users whose messages should be sent with Priority. Messages sent by these
users are placed in a Priority queue so that they receive preferential treatment over other messages.
Dashboard, Monitoring and Abuse Protection
When you login to the MailEnable Management Console, you will be presented with a dashboard providing a report on critical server
activity and server health.
This significantly reduces the need to review MailEnable's logs or the Windows Event Viewer for errors or events.
It will analyze behavior and will raise events for the review of the system administrator.
Version 7 also includes some significant improvements to spam filtering, providing real time statistics as well as integration with SpamAssassin.
MailEnable MMC - Provisioning
When new postoffices/organizations are created, MailEnable will attempt to automatically provision DNS and IIS with the appropriate
Administrators can set up default values and customize settings when new organizations are created. These values are then applied
when new postoffices and mailboxes are created (ie. you can configure templates for postoffice and mailbox creation).
The provisioning function also allows you to define custom actions that can be taken when new postoffices/ organisations are created or
removed from the platform.
MailEnable's Migration Centre provides a simple solution for migrating from legacy e-mail systems.
Using the migration console, it is possible to import mail for a single user, organization or entire server from a remote messaging platform.
