    Administration guide for novices

    Igor Shevchenko Newbie

      Hello all!
      Is there any guides for novices at administration of jbms? I even cannot understand how one can create new account (after installation finishes)?

      Is there any hope that Administrative GUI will be available soon?

          Did you read the wiki pages on this?

          The Admin GUI is on my plate right after I finish the present work on IMAP. (For some reason my brain hasn't been able to twist to do the proper tree transformation)

            Well, if you mean wiki pages available at http://wiki.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=JBossMailServer, then I've found a bit useful "Installing/Configuring M5 Release" only. But there's info only about how to create mailboxes and so on if account was added during setup.

            Actually, I want to understand, if there's possibility to administer JBMS if I'm real dummy in java. As I understand, it's impossible now, because of absence of Administrative GUI.

            So, I should dig in JBAS, should I? Or there're another ways?

              Were using mySQL stored procedures, ASP, and the like to add mailboxes. It is not that difficult after the install.
              Or you can do it the old fashioned way...
              you just browse to http://localhost:8080/jmxconsole. Search the page for mailboxmanager, in that page, create a mailbox, then get the users mailboxid, then create an alias for said mailbox id.

                Well, the problem is I'm getting

                exception

                when I'm trying to execute createMailbox. The only useful thing I've found in server logs is
                caused by: java.lang.nullPointerException
                 at org.jboss.mail.mailbox.MailboxServiceImpl.org$jboss$mail$mailbox$MailboxServiceImpl$GetMailboxByAlias$aop(MailboxServiceImpl.java:108)
                

                And I really have no ideas what does it mean.
