The Options Menu

User Preferences...
The User Preferences menu is used to set individual user details and add users to CMail. You must highlight a user in the front panel before selecting this option.

Delete User
Delete User will remove the selected user profile and restore the license to an unused state. Any mail stored in the mailbox will be removed from the system permanently.

Responder Settings...
Auto Responders send an automatic response to any messages received by a user when enabled. 

Aliases...
Aliases allow users to receive mail destined for multiple addresses by masquerading as different people or departments. Aliases also allow several users to receive mail for a single address. For example, an alias of sales@company.co.uk could be setup with users Bob, Dave and Jim as recipients for that address.

Mailing Lists...
Mailing Lists are a feature whereby lots of users are attached to a 'list' which has its own email address. When mail is sent to the list address, the mail is redistributed automatically by CMail Server to all of the users on the list.

Global Address Book...
The Global Address Book allows you to create aliases for external email addresses.

Mail Relay...
The Mail Relay feature filters email passing through CMail Server and prevents unauthorised email from passing through the system.

Mail Filtering...
Mail Filtering prevents email matching certain addresses and domains from being delivered to users. The email is deleted instead although there is an option to send a copy of the rejected mail to the Administrator.

Virus Control...
Virus Control allows CMail Server to scan incoming and outgoing mail for the presence of viruses. The configuration for Virus Control can be found in this menu although it is enabled on a per-user basis from the Advanced User Preferences menu. 

Auto Signature...
The Auto Signature feature automatically appends an Administrator defined message such as a disclaimer to the bottom of every email sent through CMail Server. 

Content Control...
Content Control allows CMail Server to scan incoming and outgoing mail for the violations of the content database as specified by the Administrator. Restrictions can also be placed on the type of files that a user can receive as attachments. The configuration for Content Control can be found in this menu although it is enabled on a per-user basis from the Advanced User Preferences menu.

Logging Options...
Practically all CMail Server's actions, including local and remote SMTP and POP3 events, are logged to text files. The Logging Options menu contains features relating to logging.
