All other features not listed here can be ignored, but please speak to the Support team if you have any questions:

Main account details

'Fixed email address' allows your client to add full from addresses to the account (up to a maximum of 10). The client would simply need to choose from a drop-down list of from addresses when creating campaigns if this option is selected.The 'domain' setting allows the domain to be fixed for the from addresses and any pre-fix added to it when creating campaigns. You are able to add more than one from domain to an account.

Accounts can be locked and unlocked by clicking on the appropriate padlock icon in the My companies view. This will prevent a user from being able to log into an account.
Editing an account
The Edit option allows you to amend all options set in the Add company section.
Under Tools fall several more options not covered when adding an account but are important to make sure the account is set up correctly for use.
- Manage users - Here you can view and edit the username and details for the admin user on the account, and any sub-users. You can also lock a user to prevent them from logging in or unlock if they have had too many incorrect password attempts. Sub-users can be added by clicking on the green cross and also deleted using the red cross (you cannot remove an admin user). When setting up a new sub-user you will prompted to set their access rights to different areas of the account.
- Manage domains - Use this section to add additional from address details for use in campaigns. Depending on whether you’ve selected ‘domain’ or ‘fixed email address’ under custom address type, you will either be able to add new domains or entire from address respectively here. From addresses can also be edited and disabled using these tools.
Login to an account
The Login option allows you to super-user into an account. If there is more than one user listed on an account then you will need to select who you log in as. You will then experience the secure application exactly as a user would when logging in using the standard login procedure.
