The Mail User Administration application is used by the system administra-
tor to administer the mail system. Specifically, the mail administrator can
change the mail service type of a single user, a group of users, or all the
users on a local system. The mail administrator can also delete defunct
mail user accounts.
The mail service types are:
+ Local Mail
+ Post Office Protocol (POP), which is designed to allow single user
computers to retrieve electronic mail from a POP server. The POP
server might be a computer with a permanent Internet connection where
its clients might connect to it only occasionally.
+ Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP), which is a protocol that
allows a client to access and manipulate electronic mail messages on a
server. IMAP allows the manipulation of remote message folders known
as mailboxes. IMAP has operations for creating, deleting, and renaming
mailboxes; for checking for new messages; for permanently removing
messages; for searching; and for selective fetching of message attri-
butes, text, and other portions. It does not specify a means of post-
ing mail; a mail transfer protocol, such as SMTP, handles this func-
Furthermore, the mail administrator can specify the use of mail passwords
on users under POP and IMAP.
