Admin Console

The Admin Console is a web interface that administrators use to manage Xeams. A built-in web server listens on a predefined port (5272 by default) for incoming client connections. Administrators as well as users connect to Admin Console using their browser.

The Admin Console can be used for:
  • Starting embedded servers like SMTP, POP3 and IMAP
  • Managing users
  • Modifying junk filtering rules
  • Monitoring in-coming and out-going emails
  • Searching emails received in the past

Type of users in Xeams

Users in Xeams play one of the three roles listed below:
  1. Super user - The main administration of the server. The user playing this role can change every configuration parameter in Xeams. This user can create domain admins and accounts for the end-user.
  2. Domain admin - This user is only valid if you have multiple-domain configuration enabled. A super user can delegate configuration for one or more domains to a different person. This user can only modify configuration parameters and filtering rule for the assigned domain. By default, this type of users are disabled in Xeams. Use the instructions below to enable it.
  3. End-user - This role is played by users who receive and send emails. When someone logs in as a normal end-user he/she can view their emails and modify filtering rules that only apply to them. For example, adding and removing email addresses from white/black list.

Enabling Domain Admins

Consider the following scenario as an example:
  • You manage email servers for two companies: CompanyA and CompanyB. They both have their email domains like: and, respectively.
  • You want to create a separate admin account for an administrator in both companies.
  • Use the following steps to accomplish this:
    • Log in as admin (Super user).
    • Click Server Configuration, select the Advanced tab and check Multi-Profile. Save the page.
    • Click Home/Switch Profile.
    • Click Add New Profile.
    • Fill out fields on this page. Click the ? icon for help.
    • Once done, repeat the same process for the second company.
