This article describes how to manage users in McAfee Control Console. Important note: Please keep in mind that creating users and managing their settings should be performed in HostPilot only as the synchronization works one way.
- Review the user list
- Group users
- Assign roles to users
- Manage users Sender Allow and Sender Deny lists
To access McAfee Control Console, log in to HostPilot® Control Panel, navigate to Services > Protection, select your plan and click Manage:
By default, all account objects (mailboxes, distribution lists, mail-enabled public folders etc.) including aliases are created in the McAfee Control Console as individual users. This ensures filtering and delivery regardless to which email address the message was sent.
To review the user list and to make sure all account objects are created correctly, navigate to Account Management > Users.
As all the aliases are created as a separate mailbox, you will find more objects in the Control Console than you see in HostPilot.
Note: Primary domain in Control Console differs from primary domain in HostPilot, intermedia.net service domain is used to ensure correct mailflow.
Users can be groupped depending on the policy you want to assign. To create a new group and add members:
- Navigate to Account Management > Groups > New, enter name and description and click Save:
- Select the group and click Edit. On the Members tab, select users, click Add > Apply:
Users can have the following roles assigned to them:
- Group Administrator
- Reports Manager
- Quarantine Manager
- Domain Administrator
