Understanding User Settings

Topic Last Modified: 2012-04-20
This topic describes the User Settings task pane in the Users tab in the Administration Tab of the Forefront Online Protection for Exchange (FOPE) Administration Center.
From the list of users on the Users tab, you can click on the Primary e-mail address to view and modify the properties for any of the users in your company.
If you use the Administration Center for your User List upload mode, the First Name and Last Name of your user can be updated in the User Settings on the user properties page. If you use the DST for user upload, then these values cannot be edited through the FOPE Administration Center.
You can edit the user settings to match your user's preferred language and time zone settings. The Language and Time Zone preferences can be configured at the company or domain level also. The most specific setting will be applied. Language preferences are applied to Spam Notifications and the Archive Viewer web pages.
You can also view the Domain to which the User belongs. This domain will be the domain of the Primary email address for the user.
Virtual Domains are used for applying specific settings to a subset of users in a domain. If the user has been associated with a Virtual Domain, then this will display under the User Settings. Users may not belong to more than one Virtual Domain. If you want to change the Virtual Domain association, the user should be associated to the new Virtual Domain through the User Upload in the Administration Center. In order to remove all Virtual Domain associations from the user, disable the active Virtual Domain. For more information on Virtual Domains, see Working With Virtual and Parent Domains in FOPE.
