Logging in to SmarterMail - System Admin

You will need to open a web browser to the location of your SmarterMail installation. By default, this URL is http://127.0.0.1:9998 (if running the browser on the server itself, otherwise use the IP address of the server instead of 127.0.0.1), but it may be different if you have changed the location of SmarterMail.

SmarterMail Login

To login to SmarterMail, type in the system admin username and password on the login screen. By default, the username and password are both "admin" (without the quotes). If everything matches up, you will be presented with the manage domains page or the activation wizard (if you have yet to activate SmarterMail).

One thing to notice on the Login page is the "Remember Me" checkbox. By checking this box SmarterMail encrypts your login and password. You can then close the browser window and not have to re-log in when you return. This function works as long as you do not "log out" of SmarterMail prior to closing your browser window. If you do log out, you will have to log back in upon your return, regardless of whether the "Remember Me" box was checked or not. You will need cookies enabled on your browser for this feature to work.
