Manage Domains

Domain accounts are shared across services. A common Domain repository is shared across James services. That is, once you've created a POP3 mail and set a password, that same is available for authenticated SMTP and NNTP.

If you have JPADomainList (default setup), you can add, delete and list the domains.

If you have XMLDomainList for example, you can only list the available domains. To add a domain, you must add it in the domainlist.xml file.
