Admin Console

  • NEW: ‘Security Policies > Password Management’ offers support for administrator to set requirements for user password strength selection: Minimum Password Length / Maximum Password Length / Minimum Capital Characters / Minimum Numeric Characters / Minimum Symbols.

Enabling this feature allows setting up a retention period (e.g. 7 years) after which all secure messages and associated file attachments are deleted from the server. By default this feature is disabled and retains records indefinitely. Note that this feature does not delete records from the customer’s mail server or archive.
