Web Administration is an additional feature available in Professional and Enterprise Editions of Lampung hosting that provides an interface to allow you to manage various services remotely via a web browser. Web Administration allows you to delegate management of Postoffices to Postoffice administrators. This effectively reduces your administration load, especially if you are hosting multiple postoffices (for example, one per customer or company), each company can manage their own configuration. You can also restrict the number of mailboxes, lists created in each postoffice via the Web Administration interface.

Remote Administration

Remote administration allows you to connect to a remote machine or cluster via the administration interface. You can then add these remote servers to the administration program for ease of access, and manage them in the same way as your local machines.

System Alerting & Monitoring

screen_mmc3_alertsLampung Hosting includes a monitoring agent that checks system health and can notify an email address of any problems that are detected, such as a large amount of email going through the system, or service failure. Monitoring tools are also provided which allow you to easily review the status of the messaging subsystem. You can access the system overview console and can review which accounts are generating the most activity. This allows administrators to identify any accounts that are being abused and to take an appropriate action.

Integrated Global Footers/Disclaimers

screen_mmc3_footersSystem and Post Office Administrators are now able to add global or Post Office footers to messages as they are sent to external parties. Mailboxes which are administrators are able to configure this through Web Administration.

Queue Prioritization

screen_mmc3_priorityMessages that are sent out as bulk e-mail or are part of an e-mail campaign can now be assigned to a bulk mail queue. This means that bulk mail outs are less likely to impact on the delivery of regular e-mail. Also, an administrator is able to designate users whose messages should be sent with Priority. Messages sent by these users are placed in a Priority queue so that they receive preferential treatment over other messages.

Dashboard, Monitoring and Abuse Protection

screen_mmc3_summaryWhen you login to the Lampung Hosting Management Console, you will be presented with a dashboard providing a report on critical server activity and server health. This significantly reduces the need to review Lampung Hosting’s logs or the Windows Event Viewer for errors or events. It will analyze behavior and will raise events for the review of the system administrator. Version 7 also includes some significant improvements to spam filtering, providing real time statistics as well as integration with SpamAssassin.

Platform Provisioning

screen_mmc3_provisioningWhen new postoffices / organizations are created, Lampung Hosting will attempt to automatically provision DNS and IIS with the appropriate configuration settings. Administrators can set up default values and customize settings when new organizations are created. These values are then applied when new postoffices and mailboxes are created (ie. you can configure templates for postoffice and mailbox creation). The provisioning function also allows you to define custom actions that can be taken when new postoffices/ organisations are created or removed from the platform.

Service Autodiscovery Management

screen_v8_autoDiscoverVersion 8 provides a simple Autodiscovery Configuration Manager, allowing you to configure the settings returned to devices when users attempt to set up new accounts. Settings for autodiscovery can be configured on a per domain basis for an array of services including IMAP, POP, SMTP, CalDAV, CardDAV and ActiveSync. This new feature means that end users will simply need to enter their email address and password on the device and the server and port settings will be automatically configured on the client.

Automated Account Creation on Apple Devices

screen_ipad_autoConfigVersion 8 also includes “one-click” configuration for Apple iOS devices. Setting up an iPhone account is now automated whether you are using Exchange ActiveSync or CalDAV / CardDAV / IMAP. This feature means that mail users can now configure their iOS device with CalDAV / CardDAV / IMAP as a single service, simply by clicking on a link within Webmail or Mobile Webmail. Administrators can also provide a link for Apple users to click on which will automatically configure their device.

Mobile Management & Administration

screen_mobileAdmin_menuLampung Hosting Enterprise Premium now includes a Mobile Web Administration client. The client automatically detects connections on a mobile device and allows the user to access a cutdown and streamlined version of Lampung Hosting’s Web Administration. This means that system administrators can review the health of their server and execute simple management tasks on their mobile devices.

Migration Centre

screen_mmc3_migrationLampung Hosting’s Migration Centre provides a simple solution for migrating from legacy e-mail systems. Using the migration console, it is possible to import mail for a single user, organization or entire server from a remote messaging platform.
