Domain Events

This settings page is only available to Domain Administrators.

The Event system in SmarterMail is an incredibly powerful and flexible tool that allows Domain Administrators to automatically perform actions based on specific criteria and remain up-to-date with what is going on with the SmarterMail server and user accounts. SmarterMail can detect events as they occur, generate messages for those events, and deliver the messages to users that need the information. For example, Domain Administrators can automatically add an additional recepient on messages sent or received by users on the or receive notifications when a task is due or their domain disk space has met a certain threshold.

To create or view events for the domain, log into SmarterMail as a Domain Administrator and use the Menu icon to navigate to the Domain Settings section. Then click on Events in the navigation pane. To create a new event, click New. The following options will be available:
