Logging On

By default, the IMAP4 service logs on to the System Account. You can view and change IMAP4 settings by using the Services applet in the Control Panel.

To view and/or change settings for the IMAP4 service:

  1. In the Control Panel, double-click the Services applet.
  2. Select IMail IMAP4 Server and click Startup.
  3. (Optional) Select the desired Startup Type.
  4. Under Log On As, select the appropriate account:
System Account. Select this if any one of your mail hosts uses the Windows NT database to register and authenticate users.
Allow Service to Interact with Desktop. Select this to provide a desktop icon that can be used by whoever is logged in when the service is started. See your Windows documentation for more information.
This Account. Select this only if none of your hosts uses the Windows NT database; then enter the name of the appropriate user account. Make sure the user is a Host Administrator.
Note: If one or more of your hosts is based on an external database, the Log On As account must be an account that has access to the external database.
