Managing Accounts

Deep Discovery Email Inspector has a default administrator account ("admin") that has full administrative access.

The default administrator account can perform the following tasks:

  • Add new administrator accounts

  • Lock or unlock an account

Accounts assigned the administrative role can create additional accounts and assign these accounts the Administrator role or the Operator role. Administrators can delegate tasks to different administrators and operators to reduce bottlenecks in Deep Discovery Email Inspector administration.

Administrator accounts can additionally edit or delete existing accounts.
