E-mail Settings node

With E-mail Settings, you can configure mail profiles and other mail-related settings, such as access settings to mail servers and providers, personal address books and personal information stores. See the manufacturer's documentation for more information about the configuration of these services.

Workspace Control applies E-mail Settings before the application's Actions are processed. This allows you to change E-mail Settings registry keys after the E-mail Settings have been configured.


  • Click New or Edit in the node Composition > Applications > E-mail Settings. This opens the New/Edit E-mail Settings window.

  • In the Properties tab, configure the basic properties of the e-mail setup.

    • Enter a name for the mail settings in the E-mail Settings name field.

    • Optionally enter a note for the mail settings in the Administrative note field. This helps you to differentiate your E-mail Settings.

    • Select one of the options and click Configure. This opens the configuration window of the selected service. You can use environment variables such as %fullusername% and functions such as $adinfo(title) and $adinfo(email). You can configure the following services:

      • Microsoft Exchange Server or Microsoft 365

        To configure mail profiles for Microsoft Outlook 2016, the option Use Autodiscover must be selected.

      • Microsoft LDAP Directory

      • Outlook Address Book

      • Outlook Signature
        When your Signature is voluntary, the signature is only created when the user starts Microsoft Outlook for the first time. This allows the user to change his signature. You can overwrite this custom signature with the default signature only once, by selecting Clear history.

      • Personal Address Book

      • Personal Folders

    • Select Create once to create the mail profile of the user only when the mail application is started for the first time or when a mail profile does not exist.

    • If you have selected Create once and you want to force an update of the e-mail settings, select Clear history. This resets the count, so that the existing e-mail settings are created again throughout the environment, according to the rules selected for Create once. This can be useful after migrating to a new mail server or client.

  • Click the Access Control tab to configure the criteria for Access Control based on context of the mail settings.

  • Click the Workspace Control tab to configure to which Workspace Containers the mail settings apply.
