The Mail User Administration application is used by the
system administrator to administer the mail system.
Specifically, the mail administrator can change the mail
service type of a single user, a group of users, or all
the users on a local system. The mail administrator can
also delete defunct mail user accounts.
The mail service types are: Local Mail Post Office Protocol
(POP), which is designed to allow single user computers
to retrieve electronic mail from a POP server. The POP
server might be a computer with a permanent Internet connection
where its clients might connect to it only occasionally.
Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP), which
is a protocol that allows a client to access and manipulate
electronic mail messages on a server. IMAP allows the
manipulation of remote message folders known as mailboxes.
IMAP has operations for creating, deleting, and renaming
mailboxes; for checking for new messages; for permanently
removing messages; for searching; and for selective fetching
of message attributes, text, and other portions. It
does not specify a means of posting mail; a mail transfer
protocol, such as SMTP, handles this function.
Furthermore, the mail administrator can specify the use of
mail passwords on users under POP and IMAP.
