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.
You must create a user account for yourself if you want to access the
Administrator control panel. As Site Administrator, you have a default
email account, but you
do not have a User Administrator account.
When you add a user, an email address and a mailbox is automatically
created for that user.
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.
