To configure MainBoss Service, you create a MainBoss Service configuration record. This record is stored in the MainBoss database; it provides MainBoss and MainBoss Service with the information they need to function correctly.

You can only have one MainBoss Service configuration record.

The MainBoss Service configuration table viewer is available at Administration | MainBoss Service | Configuration. It contains the following:

Service Name: Identifies your configuration. By default, "Service Name" is MainBossService.

Description: Describes the configuration you have created.

Apply Filter: Is present for consistency with other table viewers. However, because this table will never have more than one record, filtering is unnecessary.

Details section: Shows basic configuration information.

Incoming Mail section: Shows options related to incoming email messages.

Outgoing Mail section: Shows options related to outgoing email messages.

Messages section: Controls notifications sent out by MainBoss Service.

New MainBoss Service Configuration: Creates a new MainBoss Service configuration. This button is disabled if you already have a configuration record; if you want to change an existing configuration, use the Edit button.

Edit: This drop-down button offers several possible actions:

Edit: Opens an editor window to let you edit the configuration.

View: Opens an editor window where you can examine the configuration.

Delete: Deletes your MainBoss Service configuration. We do not recommend doing this; if you just want to change your configuration, use Edit to change the existing configuration record rather than deleting the record entirely.

Search: Is present for consistency with other table viewers. However, because this table will never have more than one record, searching is unnecessary.

Refresh: Updates the list to reflect any recent changes.
