Mail administration console users- ADM accounts

Short Link:

Mail Administration Console (MAC), our web interface for hostedemail services, is managed by administrator or ADM accounts and are used in support of our email servicesMAC provides access to manage company information, domain information, workgroups, mailboxes, and other types of accounts in your reseller profile. These settings are also accessible from the Reseller Control Panel.

Why are ADM accounts needed?

Administrative tasks for email, such as creating, deleting, and modifying email domains, users, brands, or workgroups, are performed by ADM accounts via the MAC. As you sign up for an OpenSRS reseller account, a default admin user with Company level permissions will be created based on your reseller username. For example, if your reseller username is osrsreseller, the domain osrsreseller.adm and the user admin@osrsreseller.adm will be created by default.

You can create additional admin users if you want to give admin access to others in your company so that they can manage email services for your account. There are different administrative levels or permissions that an admin user can have. The available options for a user in the MAC depend on the level of permissions assigned to that user.
