Creating a Secondary Environment

You can create secondary environments to route the inbound email traffic of individual mailboxes of a domain to other destination servers.

By default, the inbound email traffic of all mailboxes of a domain is routed to the destination server that has been defined as the primary environment in the Spam and Malware Protection module (see Adjusting the Primary Environment Settings). If the inbound email traffic of individual mailboxes of a domain shall be routed to other destination servers instead, you can create secondary environments for these destination servers.

  1. Log in to the Control Panel with your administrative credentials.
  2. From the scope selection, select the domain for which you would like to create a secondary environment.
  3. Navigate to Service Dashboard.
  4. Select the tab Service Dashboard.
  5. Click on Add secondary environment under Secondary environments.

    • Individual
    • POP3/IMAP

  7. In the field Name of environment in the Control Panel, enter the name under which the secondary environment shall be displayed in the Control Panel.
