Server Administration Template

What is server administration?

The server administration template includes a default service for handling mail received for unknown accounts (SMTP only) and an Adminstration service for rotating logs.

How do I use it?

The server administration services require no maintenence.


To make new server administration services, take the following steps:

  1. If you haven't already, read about importing templates
  2. Launch the ListSTAR Server
  3. Choose "Import Any Template..." from the "Scripts" menu
  4. Select "Server Administration Template" in the path "ListSTAR/XXX:Templates:Server Administration :"
  5. At the prompt for the address and display name of " Default", enter information for the automated mail system of your site.
  6. At this point ListSTAR will be busy for a few moments as it duplicates files and imports them into ListSTAR. If your Services window is open, you will see " Default" and "Adminisration" appear in alphabetical order. When this is finished, a dialog will appear reporting exactly how many services, address lists, and AppleScripts were created.
  7. The new template is now created. In this case, you should NOT rename the new services and address lists (renaming the " Default" service will cause it to cease functioning correctly).
