This FAQ is to help explain the Create User feature within the Sophocles Mail Manager .
- What is Create User for ?
- Create User is a List Maintainer feature that allows
a new user to be added to the Sophocles database.
- What should I check before running Create User ?
It is wise to search for a user before adding one , since a record may
already exist, and duplicate email addresses are not accepted.
- What is the Alias ?
The alias is used as a userid for web access.
By convention, the Alias for a new user should be first_initial.last_name, for example a.brown. However, if the system prompts with a clash of
alias, then either: a) the user may already exist and have been entered
by another person, or b) there is a genuine clash. In the case of b),
you need to select an Alias such as first_name.last_name, for
example allen.brown. There
are no general restrictions on the Alias used.
