Hello everyone,
I have a question. Is there a way to automatically create email =
accounts in MailSite when a user is created in Emerald? I know it does =
not take long to create the email account, but, automatic creation using =
the same id and password would eliminate a lot of errors and save a lot =
of time in the long run. If such functionality exists how do I get it =
and how do I implement it? If there is no such functionality how do I =
go about getting something initiated? I think there are quite a few =
Emerald users out there that also use MailSite. I'm sure they would =
also be interested.
I realize this is a rather long post, but, I wanted to include all of =
the background info I had. Thanks in advance.

Does rockliffe have that functionality? Its something the MAIL SERVER =
must support before we can do it.

With Post.Office/Netscape MTA, it mails a form with
the specific information to create the account. With NTMail
and the DLL, it does nothing.

The only other choice is to "batch" create an account (like
with IMail) where you call their add user program with the=20
proper parameters to create the users.

Its not just the time consuming, its the consistency. If YOU are
not doing the work, you have to explain to the person doing the
work how to do it, and make sure they do it every time. People=20
forget and email accounts don't get created, causing support
issues and making you look bad. Spelling mistakes are another
common issue.
