Changing the System Administrator Login

By default, the login for the system administrator for SmarterMail is admin/admin. While this is easy to remember, it is also fairly easy to guess. When installing SmarterMail for the first time, you will be required to change this password during the setup wizard. Here are instructions in the manner you would want to change the system administrator password again.


  1. Login as the administrator with the current login.
  2. Click the Settings icon.
  3. Choose System Administrators in the navigation pane.
  4. Click on the Options tab and double-click on the Primary Administrator or right-click and choose Edit.
  5. Enter the current password for verification.
  6. Enter a new and password (If changing the username as well, avoid using an email address for the username).
  7. Click on Save.
