Using Postfix Admin
Before you can do anything with Postfix Admin (PA) you must login with the admin information for your domain. we suggest opening the postfix admin link in a separate window and following along with these instructions.
- Your admin email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Your password.
Basic menu options
At the top of the screen, under the Covisp.net header, you will see:
Overview Add Alias Add Mailbox Send Email Password View Log Logout
Below that you will see a concise listing of what each option does:
List your aliases and mailboxes. You can edit / delete them from here.
Create a new alias for your domain.
Create a new mailbox for your domain.
Send an email to one of your newly created mailboxes.
Change the password for your admin account.
View the log files.
Logout from the system
Some important things to point out:
- If you are administrator for multiple domains, the Overview link will allow you to view each domain, one at a time.
- You create an Alias if you want an email address where the mail is forwarded on to another email address. For example, if your mail addressed to "email@example.com" should be delivered to "bob@largeISP.Net" you would want an alias.
- Mailboxes are for setting up email address that will be checked directly without being forwarded on to somwhere else.
