VPOP3 allows different users to have different permissions for doing things with the Status Monitor. For example you can set it so that only certain users can shut down the VPOP3 server, or tell it to connect, but all users can see when it last connected.

 

There are two places in the VPOP3 settings where you can adjust users' permissions: in the Status Server settings you can set permissions for all administrators, all non-administrators or all users, in one step, or in the Users' individual Permissions settings, you can set the permissions for that specific user.

 

Status Server permissions

In the VPOP3 settings, go to Services -> Status Server -> Permissions tab.

You can see the various permissions listed down the left, and then two columns, one for Administrator users, and one for Non-Administrator users.

For each permission, there will be a value of All allowed, Mixed, or All denied displayed in a drop-down box. If the value is All allowed, then all the users of that type have that permission. If the value is Mixed, then some, but not all, users of that type have that permission. If the value is All denied, then no users of that type have that permission. You can change the permissions by changing the various options for the different permissions and user types, and pressing Submit. (If you change a value to Mixed that will actually make no changes to the permissions, as there is no way on this page to specify which users you do and don't want to have the permission).

If you press the information icon to the right of a drop-down box, then the Users area at the bottom of the page will show the specific users who have this permission because of this setting.

Note that any changes to the settings via this page apply to the users as they currently are. If a user is an administrator and you give administrators certain permissions, then you change the user so that they are no longer an administrator, they will still have the permissions which you assigned to the administrators.

User permissions

In the VPOP3 settings, go to the Users page, then double-click on the user to edit them, then go to the Permissions tab for that user. Alternatively, you can click on the bunch of keys to the right of the username as a short-cut to the Permissions tab for the user.
