When you double-click the Security icon, you see the Security Options dialog box. These options affect your entire mailbox. You can also set up the encryption and digital signature default options using the Send Options tab. Remember, this tab is a duplicate of the Security tab under Send Options.
One of the most important security options is located on the Password tab, which is shown in Figure 11.13. You use this password to enter your mailbox when you start GroupWise and with the Web access gateway, routed item completion, and remote mode configuration.
Figure 11.13. This dialog box controls the password for your mailbox.
To set a password on your mailbox, follow these steps:
Figure 11.13 shows that the administrator has enabled LDAP authentication. LDAP authentication allows you to use your network password (eDirectory password) to log in to GroupWise. If the change password interface is grayed out, the administrator has set your GroupWise system so that you cannot change your LDAP (or network) password through the GroupWise client. Your administrator should then provide an alternate method that you can use to change your network or GroupWise password in this case.
After you have set up your password, you can move ahead to configuring the Notify options.
The Notify tab enables you to use the Notify program to alert you when you receive a message or even when someone else receives a message. You can also be alerted by alarms set in your own calendar as well as in other people's calendars. As with the Proxy feature, the other person must grant you the right to subscribe to notifications or alarms within his or her GroupWise account. (See "Using the Proxy Feature" in Chapter 8 for instructions on granting access to your mailbox.) The Notify tab's options are shown in Figure 11.14.
Figure 11.14. You can use Notify to be alerted to other users' email messages and appointments.
To receive notification when someone else receives a message (or to be alerted for another person's alarms), follow these steps:
In the next section, you establish the rights other people have to your mailbox through Proxy.
The Proxy Access tab establishes the rights that other users have to your mailbox when they use Proxy. This process is explained in detail in Chapter 8.
The Send Options tab of the Security Options dialog box is described in the "Security" section earlier in this chapter.
