Once you have verified that the Spamina subscription has been provisioned in Odin you can proceed to configure and setup your Spamina Product.
The configuration and setup steps are the same for both ‘Parla’ and ‘Cloud Email Firewall’ and must be followed sequentially:
Note: Step 5 is only required if you have not already bound the User to a Spamina product while creating the User in Step 4.
All steps are done within the Customer Control Panel (CCP).
Step 1: Provision the Client
- Log in to your Customer Control Panel (CCP)
- Select Spamina Cloud Management tab.
- The Client’s configuration status is shown as Not provisioned.
Under the Client’s configuration tab the Client’s information is provided in a non-editable form
Note: The Client’s information is the same as the Customer’s (whoever was created/selected when purchasing the Spamina subscription).
Create and confirm a password, click Submit button.
Important! The login and password are credentials for administrative-level access to the Spamina Portal. If your Customer is not going to be administrating the Spamina product then ensure you take note of the ‘Login’ and ‘Password’ to share with the Administrator.
The Status changes to Provisioned.
Step 2: Create Associated Domains
In order to associate a Domain with a Client/Customer, add the domain’s information in CCP.
There are 3 scenarios to be considered when associating a domain with your Client/Customer. Use the one that applies to your Customer:
1) Register a New Domain: Purchase and register a new domain with Ingram Micro
2) Transfer an Existing Domain: Make Ingram Micro the domain registrar for an existing domain
3) Add Existing Domain Registered Elsewhere: Use a domain that will remain externally registered.
Follow these steps until they bifurcate into the 3 scenarios described above; then follow the steps for the scenario that is applicable to your Customer:
