The Administration Panel of CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro is a console that enables central management of email rules within an organization. The Administration Panel can be installed during the first installation of the software or at any point later via the Control Panel. The panel consists of several tabs that give you direct access to every key feature of the program, including: complex configuration of rules, advanced settings, server monitor and diagnostic files. Furthermore, you will also find here direct links to Technical support and User's Manual if you need any help with the configuration of the program.

Please note that no matter if it is a single-server or multi-server environment, you may install practically as many Administration Panels as you want. However, please do it wisely and install them only if necessary. Additionally, as all of the panels are of equal rank, you may configure the program on any machine before the access rights are configured. The configuration of access rights assures that only predefined employees can access and configure rules for your company so make sure to set them up after fresh installation of the program as everyone within the organization will have full access rights granted by default.
Last but not least, thanks to a real-time replication of settings, any changes introduced within one particular panel will be instantly propagated to the rest of panels, which guarantees that all the settings are constantly up to date.
Note that the changes on the rest of administration panels will only be visible once a particular window is restarted.
CodeTwo Exchange Rules Pro Administration Panel may be used not only by Active Directory users (which is a Windows based authentication type) but also by external users. To define custom users from outside the domain who will be able to use the program, go to the Logon settings, mark the External user radio button and then enter the credentials.
Note that the external user's credentials need to be previously created within the Rules Access Rights Management console.
