The built-in Account Loader allows the administrator to register sets of users. The user names and Account attributes should be placed into a tab-delimited text file on the administrator (client) computer, and that file should be uploaded to the server using the Import field.
Click the browse button to select a file on your local system, and then click the Import Accounts button to create Accounts listed in the selected file.
Below is a sample IMPORT file:
Name Type Ignore Storage Aliases johnd MultiMailbox sales dept 50M susan MultiMailbox mgmt 10M susan.s, susan_smith sales MultiMailbox dummy 30M info MultiMailbox dummy 50M help
Note: The import file must be prepared on the client computer (on the computer you use to run your browser). The browser allows you to upload files from disks connected to that computer, not to the CommuniGate Pro Server computer.
Note: When using Netscape and some other Unix browsers, make sure that the file name ends with the .txt suffix - otherwise the browser won't upload the file as a text one, and the file will be ignored.
Note: The MacOS 9.x versions of the Microsoft Internet Explorer upload Macintosh files in the encoded x-macbinary format if the file contains a resource fork. Most text files created with Macintosh text editor applications contain resource forks that keep the information about the file fonts, file window position, and other Macintosh data. Such files cannot be used as import files with the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser. Either use a text editor application that saves text files without resource forks or use a browser that uploads Macintosh files without encoding.
The first file line describes the file contents. It should contain tab-delimited names of Account attributes. The following names are supported:
Name: This column contains the Account names. This attribute is not required to be in the first column, but it must exist. All other attributes are optional.
RealName: This column contains the Account user "real name".
Type: This column contains the Account type (Text Mailbox, etc.). If the file does not contain this column, or this field is empty, the Account type selected on the Account List WebAdmin page is used.
Password: This column contains the Account password. If the file does not contain this column, or this field is empty, the CommuniGate Password and the Use CommuniGate Password settings are taken from the Domain Account Template.
Unix Password: This column can be used instead of the crypt-encrypted Account passwords. The Account Loader will add the binary prefix to those strings, so these CommuniGate passwords will be used as U-crpt encrypted passwords. See the Migration section for more details.
Storage: This column contains the maximum Account Mail Storage size (in bytes, or in kilobytes, if the number is followed with&
