When a user adds a member from the Global Address List as an attendee on a calendar appointment, SmarterMail can alert the user of any potential scheduling conflicts. In addition, the user can view an Availability window to review the times that their attendee is free/busy. The following setting impacts whether the calendar availability of GAL members is shown in the calendar conflicts and availability window:

  • Enable public availability for all users - This setting is enabled by default and will allow users on the domain to review scheduling conflicts and availability for members in the Global Address List. When unchecked, domain users’ scheduling information will not be displayed in the appointment window.

  • Web Mail URL - The URL for the SmarterMail login page. Note: URLs should include the http:// prefix. For example:
  • Enable - Select this option to enable XXX
