What is the master password & how is it used?

The help file says:

"a password that will be used for access to all accounts"

But How??

You cannot set the master password & login to Webmail/OL/KAdmin as users using the master password.

So what is it used for and how do you use it.

Anyone have it set???

Master password is used only for communication with some other applications (like Voicemail). You cannot use it as "general" user login password for accesssing all user mailboxes.

Thanks,

What other apps will integrate with KMS using master p/w apart from voicemail..

Perhaps help file section should be made clearer & state it is to allow other apps to integrate with kms rather than being a skeleton key or a failsafe backdoor p/w as I imagined

It's NOT? So how can I delete spam from user's folders periodically!

I would be nice if it would work as a "true" master password.
E.g.: I am setting up a new computer for an existing user. I cannot setup outlook without knowing the users password.

I cannot reset the password because then the current workstation and cell phone stops working. Some users work from home so I have to drive to their house to set up outlook and let them type the password in or I have to try to talk them thru over the phone once they have the PC.
This inconvenience could be solved with a "true" master password.

Hello Petr

Thank you for your contributions.
