Messages

Almost any message generated by Ability Mail Server can be edited through these settings. This includes failure messages, defaults, system strings and various other messages. Each edited message is then saved as a text file in the messages folder (usually C:\Code-Crafters\Ability Mail Server 3\config\messages). This text file can be edited externally, allowing other applications or scripts to control the message.

Messages

  • Message - This drop down box allows you to select which message you wish to edit.
  • Text - This text box allows you to edit the currently selected message.
  • Restore Default - This will restore the default text of the currently selected message.
  • Restore All Defaults - This will restore all messages to the default message.

Available Messages

  • Failure Mail - Account Full - This mail is inserted into any account that cannot accept an incoming mail due to its account being too full.
  • Failure Mail - Mail Too Large - This mail is inserted into any account that receives a mail that is larger than the accounts maximum mail size.
  • Failure Mail - Undeliverable - If the Outgoing Mail service is configured to send failure messages, this is the mail that is sent to the original sender.
  • Failure Mail - Undeliverable Warning - If the Outgoing Mail service is configured to send warning messages, this is the mail that is sent to the original sender.
  • Failure Mail - Too Many Hops - If the SMTP service is configured to send hop count failures, this is the mail that is sent to the original sender.
  • WebMail - Admin Email - If the WebMail service is configured to send a notification to the administrator on sign-up events, this is the mail that is sent.
  • WebMail - Welcome - If the WebMail service is configured to send a welcome email to new sign-up accounts, this is the mail that is sent.
  • Default - Auto-Response - When a user selects the default button within WebMail, this is the default auto-response that will be loaded.
  • Default - Signature - When a user selects the default button within WebMail, this is the default signature that will be loaded.
  • Other - Stripped Attachment - If an attachment is stripped from a mail by Content Filtering or Antivirus Filtering, this is the message in the text attachment that can be added to the mail.
  • Other - Stripped Body - If the body is stripped from a mail by Content Filtering or Antivirus Filtering, this is the message that can be inserted in its place.
  • System Strings - These control various system strings that are used by all services. These allow you to effectively rename the application and mask the true identity of the mail server. This is a useful security measure which prevents potential attackers from knowing what mail server software you are using.
