This article outlines how users can automatically create mailboxes via a web page via the Sign-Up utility.
The Automatic Sign-Up utility is included in Professional, Enterprise and Premium Editions (Version 10.13 and later).
It can be enabled via the MMC under the Web Mail/Properties/Advanced tab
Once enabled, it can be accessed via adding /SignUp to your base webmail url.
It provides the following features:
The options for the signup utility are stored in a file called signup.xml within the MailEnable/Config directory.
The source code of the utility is located under the Bin/Netwebmail/SignUp folder has explanations of these settings.
The signup utility allows customization by specifying alternate locations for
CSS and JS library files.
For example, the location of logo image can be edited by changing the location within CSS file located in the Bin/NetWebMail/SignUp folder.
To achieve this, you should make a copy of the signup.css file with a modified name, eg: signup2.css.
You should then edit the Config\signup.xml file and change the CSSURL element as follows: <CSSURL>signup2.css</CSSURL>.
You can then apply any changes to the style of the page within the signup2.css page.
Page structural changes can also be achieved by modifying the <JSURL/>
The signup utility can has many options for limiting account usage so that users are less likely to abuse the services.
With MailEnable Enterprise Edition it is possible to restrict access to specific MailEnable services as well as enforcing usage thresholds. This means that users signing up for web mail can be excluded/provided restricted access to POP, SMTP, IMAP, HTTPMail services (which inhibits people from abusing hosted services).
However, allowing anonymous persons to signup to the mail service may lead to you being blacklisted. If you disable these thresholds and do not review your system, spammers may use the service to generate SPAM mail messages - possibly leading blacklisting on RBL/ORDB databases
