NOTE: The About iManager menu option will tell you what version you are running and if there is a more current version available. Any bugs or suggestions should be submitted to ITS Technical Support.

  • File Manager
    The File Manager gives you full control of your files, allowing you to upload, download, edit, move, delete, or copy your files using an easy to understand graphical interface.

  • E-Mail Manager
    The Mail Manager functions like an IMAP E-Mail client program, allowing users to check, send, and store their E-Mail through a convenient Web-based interface.

  • Tools and Wizards
    The Tools and Wizards allow you to manage your Virtual Private Server, including managing users, E-Mail accounts, autoresponders, and spam controls.

  • Multi-Language Support
    iManager is now available in French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish. The default language can easily be changed in the language preferences section.

  • Virtual Hosting Support
    Virtual Hosting setup and maintenance in the Apache configuration file can now be easily done through the new Virtual Hosts Utility. Apache can also be restarted through this utility.

  • Preferences
    Certain aspects of the File Manager, Mail Manager, and the administrative Tools and Wizards can be customized to your own liking. For example, by default you are prompted to confirm the removal of a file or a mail message. Using the Preferences wizards, you can turn this confirmation off.
