Enterprise Manager FAQ


What are Divisions?
Divisions are an organizational tool available to the Enterprise Manager. If you would like to divide your company into locations (for example, “East Coast” and “West Coast”), this is the ideal place to designate your users in a hierarchy. You can assign appropriate controls to Division Managers as well as users belonging to that Division. 

What can Division Managers control?
Division Managers have the ability to manage users in their Division or the Sub-Divisions beneath them. They must be assigned as a Division Manager in the Modify screen of a Division by their Enterprise Manager, who may restrict certain management abilities. 

Can settings differ between Divisions?
Yes. You can apply Password and Session timeout requirements in a Division, or apply it to all Divisions. You may also configure auto-aliasing and the default email plan for all users in a Division and Sub-Division. Features can also be included or excluded by Division. If you click on a Division to modify, you can assign Managers and set a profile for a Division. 

How do I setup an additional Enterprise Manager?
There can only be one Enterprise Manager in the top-level Division. Sub-Divisions may have multiple Managers, and their abilities may be restricted if needed.
The following features are available to top-level Enterprise Managers only:

  • Mailing Lists.
  • Management of Enterprise Contacts.
  • Ability to assign Sub-Division Managers.

Can I modify user password settings?
You can set the password requirements in each Division, or in the top Division, and apply the rules to all users.
To modify user password settings:

  1. Go to View Divisions through the Enterprise icon.
  2. Click the Modify button next to the Division you wish to edit, or select the top Division to apply the settings to all users.
  3. Under Security Settings, you can configure the Password Expiration by clicking Modify. You may set the frequency of days that users are required to update their password, or never require a password update. You may apply this to one Division or all sub-Divisions. Click Save Settings to apply.
  4. Under Security Settings, you can configure the Session timeout frequency (in minutes, up to 999 minutes) and whether or not users can choose this themselves (“Users can not change this setting” to restrict). You may apply this to one Division or all sub-Divisions. Click Save Settings to apply.

What are aliases, and how do I add them to users?
An alias is just another name attached to your domain to form an email address. For example, John Smith’s username is jsmith.mygigemail. His default alias (sent in the From section on his email) is jsmith@mygigemail.com. He also has the aliases ofjohnsmith@mygigemail.com and john@mygigemail.com. John, therefore, has three aliases that will all direct email to his one email account (one username and password).

To add an alias to a user, go to the Enterprise and select the user you wish to modify. Then follow these steps:

  1. Go to Email Aliases and New Alias.
  2. Select the domain and format for the new alias, or enter it into the text box. You may also set a catch-all alias so all emails into that domain are delivered to that user.
  3. You can also set the default alias for that user by checking the box.
  4. Click Create.

To add an alias to all users, go to Preferences and Email Domains and Aliases. Then follow these steps:

  1. Select the domain to alias, and click on Alias all users.
  2. Select Yes, and Set As Default to set that alias as the sender address for all users.
  3. To simply add the alias to all users, click Yes.
