Advanced User Preferences

Advanced User Preferences define the options for Virus Control, Content Control and Web Interface user rights on a per user basis. Advanced User Preferences can be accessed by double clicking a username in the Console Window or selections Options > User Preferences and then clicking the Advanced button.

The Advanced User Preferences menu is split into three sections. The first section deals with Content Control, the second with Virus Control and the third with Web Interface user rights. 

Note: If any of the checkboxes appear to be disabled, you have enabled the Global profile for that group of options and the settings will be taken from the Administrator profile. 

Content Control is used to scan messages for offending words, phrases or banned file types. 

Users Mail is checked by content control
Turns on Content Control for this user profile. This users email will be scanned for content violations. Any messages that violate content control will not be delivered.

Scan inbound email messages
Incoming mail messages addressed to this user will be scanned for content violations when enabled.

Scan outbound email messages
Outgoing mail messages sent by this user will be scanned for content violations when enabled.

Send Copy to Administrator
If banned or restricted content is discovered in an email message, CMail will send a copy of the violation to the Administrators mailbox.

Inform sender of violation
CMail will send a notification informing the user that a violation has occurred addressed from the Content Control Subsystem.

Raise a Visual Alert
A message box will appear on the console screen informing the Administrator that there has been a content violation.

Virus Control is used to scan email messages and attachments for the presence of viruses. 

Users Mail is checked by Virus Control
Enables the Virus Control system for this user profile. All email sent and received by this user will be scanned by the Anti Virus engine defined in Virus Control.

Send Report to Administrator
If a suspected virus is detected, CMail will email the report file generated by the virus scanner to the Administrator.

Try to clean the infected file
CMail will instruct the virus scanner to try to disinfect the file containing the virus. If this operation is successful, CMail will forward the 'clean' copy of the message to the user. If the clean is unsuccessful, the file attachment will be deleted.

Inform Sender of Virus
If this option is enabled, CMail will send a message to the sender of the message stating that the email they sent contained a virus.

Raise a Visual Alert
A message box will appear on the console screen informing the Administrator that a virus has been detected.

Web Interface defines the rights that this user has when using CMail Server's Web Interface.

User can use the Web Interface
Allows the user to access the Web Interface mail client of CMail Server. If this is disabled, the user will receive an error message after entering their username and password.

User can send external email
With this option disabled, the user can only send email to domains that appear in the Hosts/Domains list defined in the Host Configuration menu. Enabled, the user can send email to any address in the world.

User can send Attachments
With this option enabled, users can attach files to messages and send them through the Web Interface. When this option is disabled, users can only send ordinary messages without attachments.

User can Receive Attachments
If this option is enabled, the user will be allowed to receive attachments. If it is disabled, any attachments will be stripped from the message.

User can add to the public address book
If this option is enabled, the user can add entries to the public address book which is shared by all Web Interface users.
