Email Management: How to Set Up an Email Administrator

Modifying a mailbox normally requires you to log in through your FatCow Control Panel. However you can designate one of your mailboxes as a mailbox administrator. An administrator has access to modify all of your mailboxes without needing to log into your FatCow control panel.

This is beneficial if you have multiple people accessing their own mailboxes on your account and you want to grant administrative rights to one of your users.
