For the main domain, the Accounts file directory is created inside the base directory.
Inside each domain file directory, a Settings file directory is created. This directory contains the following files:
The account files are located in the domain file directory or in its subdirectory (see the Domains section for the details).
For a multi-mailbox account, a directory with the account name and .macnt
extension is created, and all account files are stored in that directory. The account
service files are stored as account.extension. The INBOX mailbox is stored as
the INBOX.mailboxType file.
Example: for the multi-mailbox account John, the john.macnt directory is created, and the files INBOX.mbox, account.settings, account.info are placed in that directory.
For a single-mailbox account, the INBOX mailbox is created as a file in the domain file directory or
its subdirectory, and it has the accountName.mailboxType file name. The account
service files are stored in the same directory as accountName.extension.
Example: for the single-mailbox account John, the john.mbox, john.settings, and john.info are placed into the domain file directory.
The Personal Web Site files are stored in the account service directory with the .web file name extension.
Users can upload files to their Personal Web Sites (can publish files) using any HTML composer application that supports the POST, DELETE, and MOVE HTTP methods (for example, the Netscape Composer). They should use their regular account names and passwords to upload Web Site files. The Domain and Server administrators also can upload files to a user Personal Web Site.
The list of all files in the Account Personal Web Site can be seen using the following URL:
This page requires the user authentication and it can be used to upload new files to the Personal Web Site and to remove files from the site:
email@example.com Web Site Index
The Personal Web site default (home) page should have the default.html name.
All Routing Rules discussed in the Access section apply to the Personal Web Site URLs, so an account alias name can be used in the Personal Web Site URL.
The Account Web Files Limit setting specifies how many files can be placed into the Account Personal Web Site, and the Account Web Storage Limit setting specifies the maximum total size of all Personal Web Site files.
The Web Site setting in the Enabled Services set is used to enable and disable access the Account Personal Web Site.
The account Public Information is stored in the dictionary format in an optional account service file with the .public extension.
Users can update their Public Information attributes via the WebUser Interface, or via the ACAP protocol.
Account preferences are stored in the optional .prefs account service file.
To use this Netscape Roaming service, the user should specify the following URL
as the Roaming Server URL:
where domain is the user domain (or the main CommuniGate Pro domain), and port is the CommuniGate Pro User HTTP port.
The actual account name is not specified in this URL. Access to the /Settings/ realm requires authentication, and the CommuniGate Pro Server opens the account specified in the browser username/password dialog box.
If the URL used contains the correct domain name of the target account, the account name can be specified as a simple name (i.e. without the domain part), but if the URL contains the name of some other CommuniGatePro domain (because the target domain does not have any A-record), the account name should be specified along with the domain name, i.e. instead of the jsmith string, the firstname.lastname@example.org string should be used in the Netscape username/password dialog box.
The Netscape Settings are stored as separate files inside the account service directory with the .roaming extension.
