How to create mailboxes and configure the domain
Create mailboxes for users

- Click the Domain Management tab.
- Configure DNS for the domain.
- In the Domain Management tab, configure the domain settings.
How to add users to your account
Ensure automatic activation of added users in your account. When adding users in User Management, you must create the user with a temporary password; otherwise, users will be required to sign in using a one-time passcode (OTP) sent to their mailbox before
- Under User Management, access the Users tab.
- Add users to your account.
A window will appear where you can edit user details.
- In the window, ensure that you select the Default Password checkbox.
Note: The password must:
- Have at least 8 characters
- Have at least 1 letter (a, b, c...)
- Have at least 1 number (1, 2, 3...)
- Include both uppercase and lowercase characters
- Must not contain 4 consecutive characters (e.g. "11111", "12345", "abcde", or "qwert")
- Click Add.
- After you add users to your account, create mailboxes for those added users.
Once the mailboxes are created, those added users must sign in to the Zoom desktop client and activate their mailbox.

How to import emails into Zoom servers
Zoom Mail provides self-service email import capabilities from Gmail and Microsoft Office 365
through the Zoom client or Zoom web portal (for account owners and admins).
- Sign in to the Zoom web portal as an admin with the privilege to edit account settings.
- Access Domain Management.
- Click the Bulk Migration tab.
- Import batches of users.
- Each batch can contain up to 50 users.
- For easier management, the administrator can give a name for each batch. In this case, since you are keeping the same email address, the current address and the Zoom mail address should be the same.
- You can add multiple users in the same batch.
The server will start the work in the background. Revisit and check each batch’s current status. The email import may take more time if the mailbox is larger. Zoom’s current setting is about 7500 messages per hour.
