Automation with Web Services

SmarterMail was built with custom configuration in mind. In addition to being able to customize the look and feel of SmarterMail, developers and/or system administrators have the ability to code to the SmarterMail application using several different Web services. These Web services allow developers and/or system administrators to automate a variety of different things: add domains to SmarterMail on the fly, grab domain-specific bandwidth usage for billing purposes, set details on a specific domain or server, update domain information, test servers added to the Web interface, and more.

The Automation with Web Services documentation may include services that have not been released to the public yet or are not available in the version you are using. For the most accurate Web services information, log into SmarterMail as the system administrator and click the Settings icon. Then click API Documentation in the navigation pane.

Note: Web services are intended for use by high-volume and automated business environments, and hosting companies as they develop procedures to manage their SmarterMail system and workflow. In addition, this document assumes a basic understanding of Web service technologies and ASP.NET programming.
