3. Setup

3.1. Server Configuration


Log in to your WHMCS, press 'Setup' -> 'Products/Servoces' -> 'Servers'. Press 'Add New Server'.



Next, enter your server name (polarismail). Type in your username and password used to login in to Polarismail server and use 69.28.212.201 for hostname.

After you configure your server correctly, you will see the following screen:


3.2. Product Configuration


In order to create and configure product, click on 'Setup' -> 'Products/Services' -> 'Products/Services'.

If you do not have a product group, click on 'Create a New Group'.

Enter product group name and press 'Create Group':



When you have a product group, you can create a new product and assign it to PolarisMail.

Afterwards, choose your product type and product group from dropdown menus, enter your product name and press 'Continue'.



Now go to 'Module Settings' section, choose both 'PolarisMail' and your previously created server group from dropdown menus.

Afterwards, define settings of the module and press 'Save Changes'.


Make sure to select the Setup type that best corresponds to your business logic! At order time, after payment is received or upon manual approval of the order.





Create a product configurable option at 'Setup' -> 'Products/Services' -> 'Configurable options'.



Configurable Options allow you to fine-tune the products that you will be selling to your customers. You should create one Product and one associated Configurable Options Groups. If you want to have two Products, there should be two Configurable Options Group, etc.

Each group must have the options below which specify how many Basic mailboxes, Enhanced mailboxes, Mailbox Quota, Total Aliases and Total Distribution Lists, that product will have.

You could for example have one Product which sells 1 basic mailbox with 5GB of storage space, 0 enhanced mailboxes, 1 alias and 1 distribution List, another Product which sells 5 basic mailboxes, 10GB of storage each, 0 enhanced mailboxes, 10 aliases and 10 distribution lists.


Create the following configurable options and assign them to the Configurable Options Group you just created:

  1. Total Mailboxes
  2. Total Enhanced Mailboxes
  3. Mailbox Quota (GB)
  4. Total Aliases
  5. Total Distribution Lists


For each option, make sure to edit it and set the proper quantity that you wish to offer with the product. For example, you might set Total Mailboxes to 1, in order to offer only one mailbox in this product.


You must set a value for each option, even if it's 0.
