Types of Secondary Environments

In the Service Dashboard module, different types of secondary environments can be managed.

In addition to the primary environment, to which the inbound email traffic of the mailboxes of a domain is routed by default, secondary environments can be managed in the Control Panel. Secondary environments are destination servers to which the inbound email traffic of individual mailboxes of a domain shall be routed instead of the primary environment. In the Service Dashboard module, the following types of secondary environments can be managed:

  • Individual: This type of secondary environments allows administrators to define their own destination servers. To do so, they can specify the IP addresses or the hostnames of the destination servers. Administrators can create several secondary environments of this type.
  • POP3/IMAP: For this type of secondary environment, the destination server is our POP3 or IMAP server. Administrators can only create one secondary environment of this type.
  • Hornet.email: For this type of secondary environment, the destination server is the server of our email service Hornet.email. Administrators can only create one secondary environment of this type.
