The WebUser Interface consists of several types of HTML pages that you can access using the controls - links and buttons. When you access the server using a WAP/WML (wireless phone) or IMode browser, WML or IMode pages with the same functionality are generated and sent to your wireless device.
The Login page allows you to log into the WebUser Interface by presenting your user name and password:
Check that the Domain Name (domain1.dom in this example) correctly specifies the Domain your Account belongs to. If you cannot open the Login page of the proper Domain, you still can log in, but then you would need to enter your full Account name (in the accountName@domainName form).
Your Account WebUser Preferences (Settings) may enable some additional security mechanisms,
such as the Fixed IP Address mechanism and/or the Cookies mechanism.
When you connect using a network with multi-home proxies (such as the AOL network), your requests come to the CommuniGate Pro server from different network addresses, even when you continue to use the same browser on the same network. If you have to connect to the Server from such a network, you may want to disable the Network Address feature for this session, otherwise you will get disconnected very quickly.
Some browsers do not support "cookies". If you have to connect to the Server from such a browser, you may want to disable the Cookie check for this session.
If you always connect from a proxied network or if you always use a browser that does not support cookies, you may want to disable this security options in your Account WebUser settings, so you won't have to disable them manually every time you try to log in.
You can use your browser Authentication capabilities as an alternative method to log into the WebUser Interface. Click the Auto-Login link on the login page, or point your browser to http://yourserver:port/login/
Your browser may display a dialog box asking you to supply your credentials, or it will use
your already activated credentials. The browser then sends a request with these credentials.
When the Server verifies and accepts your credentials, a WebUser Session is created and your browser is redirected into that session.
Browser Authentication is more secure if a session is established via a clear-text link, and secure HTTP Authentication methods are enabled and supported in the browser.
Browser Authentication is convenient because the browser remembers the supplied credentials and it will login automatically the next time you direct it to this special URL. If the browser supports the Single Sign-On Authentication (such as GSSAPI/Kerberos and/or client Certificates), this method allows you to log into the WebUser Interface without supplying your credentials again.
Note: it is not recommended to use Browser Authentication on workstations shared by several people (because the browser remembers the supplied credentials), unless the workstation and the Server are configured to use Single Sign-on Authentication (and thus the supplied credentials are always the actual credentials of the current workstation user).
The CommuniGate Pro Server automatically detects WML and IMode devices, and automatically switches to the WML or IMode interface when these devices are used.
If the Server does not correctly detects your wireless device type, you may want to specify the markup language explicitly.
To use the WML interface, point your device browser to http://yourserver:port/wml
To use the European version of the IMode interface, point your device browser to http://yourserver:port/imode
To use the Japanese version of the IMode interface, point your device browser to http://yourserver:port/imodejp
To use the regular HTML interface, point your device browser to http://yourserver:port/html
The Administrator of your Server or your Domain can enable an auto-signup feature. If this feature is enabled, you can open the Signup page (using a link on the Login page), enter your Account name ("username"), password and some other parameters, and create a new Account in this Domain. The system then logs you in that Account:
The passwords entered in both passwords fields should match.You may want to enter the Forgotten Password Retrieval E-mail address - the system will send your password there if you forget it. Please note that:
You can tune the WebUser Interface by modifying settings on the Settings pages.
The Settings pages contain options that customize Accesses to Mailboxes, Mailbox Browsing, Message Browsing, and Message Composing.These pages also contain some generic settings:
The WebUser Interface Settings page contains a link to the Account Mailbox Subscription and Mailbox Aliases page.
The WebUser Interface Settings page contains a link that opens the Password Editor page:
To update your password, enter your current password, then enter your new password twice, and click the Modify button.
Note: The New Password fields may be absent. This means that the Administrator did not allow you to modify your Account password.
You can specify the Password Recovery E-mail address. It should be an address of some other account, most likely - on some other system. If you ever forget your CommuniGate Pro Account password, you will be able to ask the Server to send your password to that E-mail address. To set the Password Recovery E-mail address, enter your current password and the Password Recovery E-mail address into their fields and click the Modify button.
The Public Info Editor page can be used to modify your Account data stored in the Directory. Other users can retrieve this information from the Directory using any LDAP client, or using WebUser Interface to the CommuniGate Pro Directory.
The System Administrator defines the set of Account Settings used as user's Public Info. If the Public Info Editor page contains no fields, the System Administrator has not specified any Public Info settings.
You can update the Public Info Account Settings by modifying the data in the value fields. Please note that the CommuniGate Pro Server can 'rename' Account Settings when storing them in the Directory. The City setting may be stored as the standard l directory attribute, while the Work Phone setting can be stored as the telephoneNumber attribute in your Directory record. The Server Administrator specifies the Account Settings <-> Directory Attribute renaming rules.
You can modify your "profile" information (the profile.vcf vCard file) using the Profile Editor:
Enter your personal data you want to disclose in your "profile" and click the Save Contact button. You can attach this profile information to E-mail messages you sent.
This profile data is used with your Instant Message clients.
The WebUser Interface provides access to the Account Automated Mail Processing Rules. If the Can Modify Account Rules Account Setting is not enabled, then you can view the Account Mail Rules, but you cannot modify them.
You can turn the Auto-Reply option on and you can modify the Auto-Reply message text even if your Account does not have a right to modify any Mail Rules.
See the Automated Mail Processing Rules section to learn how to specify the Rules.
The WebUser Interface provides access to the Account Automated Signal Processing Rules. If the Can Modify Signal Rules account option is not enabled, then you can view the account Signal (Call) Rules, but you cannot modify them.
The WebUser Interface provides access to the list of the Remote POP Accounts that the system polls on your behalf.
If the Can Modify RPOP Accounts account option is not enabled, then you can view the list of RPOP Accounts, but you cannot modify them.
See the RPOP Module section to learn how to specify the Remote POP Accounts to poll.
The WebUSer Interface Settings allow you to specify how the delete operations are handled:
The WebUser Interface allows you to send and receive digitally signed and encrypted messages. It can decrypt encrypted messages, verify digital signatures, and perform other Secure Mail operations.
The Secure Mail functionality is available only if your Account and Domain have the S/MIME Service enabled.
See the WebUser Interface S/MIME section to learn how to use Secure Mail functions.
The WebUser Interface allows you to set and modify your Account Access Rights.
Open the Mailboxes Settings page and locate the Access Rights panel:
