By default GFI MailEssentials uses the Active Directory to verify the account permissions when configuring the Access Control list. In order to allow local accounts to be added a change of a configuration file is required.
Please note, this is a switch and only one option will work at a time. It either checks the Active Directory or it checks the local machine. To change the settings, please proceed as follow:
- Check the usermanagement.xml file in the ...\MailEssentials\EmailSecurity\Data folder( GFI MailEssentials 2014 R2 and later builds directory ...GFI\MailEssentials\Attendant\data ), and check for the following tag:
- Change the text from true to false in order to enable checking for local accounts
Note: All GFI MailEssentials services must be stopped first in order for this change to go into effect. You can restart the services after you have saved the changes to the xml file.
