Adding User Credentials

To be able to use the Outlook Add-In, you have to enter the user credentials.

You have a manually created Control Panel account.

  1. In the Hornetsecurity group, click on (Settings).

    A window opens.

  2. Enter your credentials for the Hornetsecurity Control Panel in the username and password fields.

    The credentials must belong to a Control Panel account that has been created manually. The mailbox must have been added manually to the Control Panel, and not through synchronization. The password must also be managed by the administrator and not be synchronized. Credentials for LDAP and Microsoft 365, which can also be used to log in to the Control Panel, are not supported.

  3. Click on Save to store your data in the Outlook Add-In.

Via the Hornetsecurity group and context menu, you will then have direct access to the Spam and Malware Protection service, the Aeternum email archive and Email Encryption if enabled.
