This is crucial for maintaining security, efficiency, and proper functioning of your IT infrastructure. Here are some key aspects of user administration, specifically related to email:

    • Assign appropriate permissions to users based on their roles and responsibilities.
    • Determine who can send/receive emails, access certain folders, and manage the email system settings.
  3. Password Management:
    • Enforce strong password policies to ensure account security.
    • Regularly prompt users to update their passwords.
    • Implement multi-factor authentication (MFA) for an additional layer of security.
  4. Access Control:
    • Limit access to specific email features or functionalities based on user roles.
    • Control access to sensitive information and confidential emails.
  5. User Training:
    • Provide training to users on best practices for email security, including how to recognize phishing attempts and suspicious emails.
  6. Monitoring and Auditing:
    • Regularly review user accounts and permissions to ensure they are up-to-date and accurate.
