AddMailbox/AddLogin does not create .SYS file

Postby mcbsys » Thu Dec 16, 2010 5:46 pm

Hi,

I noticed that when I create a mailbox in the ME Standard 4.26 MMC, it adds a .SYS file, e.g.

C:\Program Files\Mail Enable\Config\Postoffices\TestPO\MAILBOXES\AUserCreatedInMMC.SYS

which contains a couple of lines:

Code: Select all

[General]
ReplyAddress=AUserCreatedInMMC@testpo.org
DisplayName=

However when I create a mailbox with the API using AddMailbox and AddLogin, that file is not created.

I see that ReplyAddress and DisplayName are available as name-value pairs through the Options class. Do I need to add/edit those values every time I add/edit a mailbox and login? Or are they optional?

Thanks,

Hi,

All the options that you see in the config file are optional. The admin program just adds these by default when you created a mailbox. The replyaddress is used in webmail, so if you have multiple email addresses attached to a mailbox you can default to one of them.

Great, thanks. Maybe I'll add ReplyAddress and DisplayName later, but it sounds like I can deploy without it for now.
