17.1-Application Settings

Application Settings

Manage the global application settings, things like database details, current installation path and the IP address of the server, time zone and other related settings. Click the page “Application Settings” located under “Settings” towards the bottom of the left navigational menu. The page will offer you the ability to manage application settings on three levels, discussed as follows.

Application Setting Details

The details of the fields in the section are discussed in the table, followed by the image below. 

Figure#17.1.1: Application Setting Details
General Application Settings-MumaraClassic

Table Consists of:

  • Text Fields
  • Dropdown Selections  

Table#17.1.1: Application Setting Details

Domain URL

This refers to the path of current installation of the application. Make sure you have provided the complete installation path.

Current Server IP

Provide the IP address of the installation server, installation server refers to the server using which you have installed/hosted the application.  

GEO Track

GEO tracking field carries a dropdown with two options to enable and disable GEO specific tracking of the opens and clicks. Make your selection from dropdown and proceed. But to make any selection work for your application, make sure you have subscribed to the Geo Tracking Addon of Mumara.

Delete Stats Days

Mention the figure after which you want the application to automatically delete/remove the stats.

Time Zone

Select the time zone for the application, selected time zone will have an effect on the scheduled tasks such as, time of the auto-responders, trigger based email campaigns, automatic bounce processing, and other scheduled tasks related to the maintenance of the application.

However, to manage the time zone for the individual accounts other than the admin/parent account, you’ll have the ability to select different time zone while creating the new user accounts. 

Notification Email

It will work as default email that will be used to notify admin about certain actions performed or completed by the application. When you create the content for the "Notification Emails" for certain actions, the email that you will provide in this field appears under "Notify Admin" option, if selected the "Notify Admin" option as "Yes". Another email can however be selected to notify admin, when creating the content of notification email.

Allowed IPs

Limit the access to login to number of provided IPs only. No IP will be able to login to the application, other than the list of comma separated IPs that you will provide in this list. If you don't want to put the IP restriction, keep this field empty. 

Make sure that this IP restriction will also apply on the user accounts that you create using user management module. So be careful when providing the number of IPs.

Unsubscribe Email

It has become a standard practice to have your list unsubscribe header included with both Email Based (mailto) and Link Based (HTTP) unsubscribe methods. Providing an unsubscribed email in this field will include this email into your header and will conclude your list unsubscribe header with both mailto and link based unsubscribe methods. However, keeping this field empty without any email will end up by providing only link based method in list unsubscribe header. 

Sending Limits

The section allows applying email sending limits globally, and individual user accounts won't be able to send more than the email limits defined in these fields, no matter their User's Role Group allows them to send more than this.

Global Sending Limits

Table#17.1.2: Global Sending Limits

Monthly Email Limit

Restrict the application by limiting the number of maximum monthly emails. Make sure as these are the global application settings using the admin account, therefore exceeding from the monthly email limit stated in the field, would not be possible for the individual user account. Type -1 for unlimited emails monthly.

For example, if the top level application settings are restricting to send more than 100,000 emails monthly, the individual user account monthly sending limit can’t be set to more than 100,000, it would be under 100,000 as per global application settings. 

Daily Email Limit

Works the same as described above for “Monthly Email Limit’, limit the daily sending by providing the maximum number of emails allowed, and type -1 for unlimited emails.

Hourly Email Limit

Works the same as described above for “Monthly Email Limit", limit the hourly sending by providing the maximum number of emails allowed, and type -1 for unlimited emails.
