Creating and editing accounts from the Notes® preference

Accounts provide the information needed by components to connect to servers. In Notes®, accounts enable you to connect to a Domino® server. Accounts are secured by a name, password, authentication server and authentication type. Preferences enable you to create, edit, or delete certain accounts.

Typically an administrator creates accounts for users by configuring Domino® user policy settings. However, as a user and based on your policy settings, you can change, edit, or delete certain account types using the Accounts preferences panel. For example, you can create a new account and establish a name, description, account type, and associated server for that account.
