What is the difference between Group members and users of the Admin panel

In this KB entry, we will breakdown the difference between Group members and users of our Admin console.

What are Group members

Group members are members of the Groups functionality of Mailfence. A function that allows you to collaborate with your colleagues, friends, or even family and manage your private and group space. You could set up a group calendar to plan common events quickly and effortlessly. For the full list of capabilities please visit our dedicated blog post on Groups.

Groups do NOT function as separate accounts (or mailboxes) managed by your account. You can however give access rights to group members. Such rights include access to a document, right to edit a document, or access to a private or group calendar event.

What are users of the Admin Panel

Users of the admin panel function as separate accounts. Every user has a separate mailbox. Users of the admin panel are NOT related to group members. You can create and manage users, set email addresses for them and manage their billing and so much more. Once you have created users, you can create a common Group for these users (Settings -> Administration -> User groups).

In case you face any issues with Groups and the Admin panel, just drop us a quick email at support[at]mailfence.com (PGP key) so we can get you sorted.
