In addition to adding users manually (which is described in chapter User Management), MailStore Server can synchronize its internal user database with an IceWarp Server user database. For this, MailStore Server requires the IceWarp Server API version 10.4 or newer.
During synchronization user information such as user names and email addresses are read from the IceWarp Server user database and recorded in MailStore Server’s user database. MailStore Server makes no changes to the IceWarp Server user database itself. Synchronization can be limited to individual or multiple domains and groups.
For synchronization MailStore Server requires information on how to connect to the IceWarp Server.
After configuring the connection settings as described above, you can specify filter criteria for the IceWarp Server user database synchronization in this section.
By default, users that have been synchronized to MailStore Server from an IceWarp Server have the privilege to log on to MailStore Server as well as read access to their own user archive.
You can configure those default privileges before synchronization, for example, to assign the privilege Archive E-mail to all new users. To do this, click on Default Privileges...
More information on managing user privileges and their effects is available in the chapter Users, Folders and Settings which also has details on editing existing privileges.
Click on Test Settings to check synchronization configuration and the results returned by the IceWarp Server without any changes to the MailStore Server user database being actually committed.
To finally run the synchronization, click on Synchronize now. The results are shown with any changes committed to the MailStore Server user database.
By default, each user created in MailStore Server has a local password. The MailStore Server administrator can specify this password during creation of a new user account. The respective user can later change this password in MailStore Client’s Quick Access section if he or she has ample privileges.
Alternatively, if an IceWarp Server is available, you can configure MailStore Server to allow users to log on to MailStore Server using their IceWarp Server credentials.
If you have created MailStore Server users by IceWarp Server synchronization as described in the previous section, no further action is required. In this case, MailStore Server has already configured all necessary settings automatically for you.
If you have created MailStore Server users manually and want them to be able to log on using their IceWarp Server credentials, please proceed as follows:
