About users and mailboxes

A user is a person with an account on your domain. You must set up user accounts on your domain before users can access services, such as email, or make an FTP connection to the Web server.

About mailboxes

When you add a user, an email address and a mailbox is automatically created for that user.

About the User Defaults template

If you are adding many users with similar settings, you can set the User Defaults template to preset the disk quota and services options on the Add User form.

This template is not required to add a user to a domain; however, it can make adding multiple users easier and faster by establishing default user values.

When you add a new user to a domain, the control panel pre-fills the add user form with the defaults you set. You can change them before you add the user, however.
