In order to make it easier for an administrator to integrate FTGate into their network, FTGate offers the ability to auto-create mailboxes.

Active Directory Migration

Active Directory Migration allows  FTGate to create mailboxes automatically if the users login details match an entry in an Active Directory (AD) or NT SAM database. If the users login matches the AD entry then FTGate will create a mailbox and let the user have access to it.

In order to enable this option simply navigate to System Administration/Domains/Your Domain/General, add the active directory domain name and set the Allow mainboxes to auto-create option to yes.

When new users connect to POP3/IMAP or Web Mail their username and password will be verified against the Active Directory database and if a match is found their mailbox will be crated.
