Info: Extended Database Format for ModusMail


Version & Build: 4.1.361 + up

Modusmail Extended Database Schema

The ModusMail Extended Database format supports most of the mailbox information and settings at the User level.  If you are using this format for mailbox authentication, please verify prior to installation that your database fields match the attached schema; otherwise mismatch errors can occur. 
NOTE: Mailbox aliases are not yet configurable in the database - they must be created in the Modus administration console: User's mailbox properties > Aliases tab.
Important Notes:
1. The table name must be called VOPMAIL (upper case).
2. Index the Username and Domain fields to help reduce processing time.

3. The attached database schema has been updated to increase the size of the auto responder / vacation and forwarding address fields.  If you wish to increase the size of these or any other fields without dropping and recreating the table, use the following procedure (instructions are for SQL):

  • Increase the size through the Enterprise Manager
  • Run the following script using the Query Analyzer:

alter table VOPMAIL

alter column auto_message varchar(255)
alter table VOPMail

alter column forward_to varchar(255)
