User Impersonation by System Administrators
IMail System Administrators have the capability to access any users within their IMail Server without having to know the users password. Impersonation gives System Administrators access to a users web client mailbox to check, verify or assist with issues that may arise.
The System Administrator once logged in can do the following:
- Delete mail messages
- Move mail messages
- Create / Modify mail folders
- Full access to contacts
- Full access to rules
- Preference modification
: System Administrator impersonation will not allow sending mail, as authentication will prevent the mail to process. Impersonation will also not allow access to the users web calendar.
