Proxy - Introduction

Rainmail Server has a Proxy module. When implemented, users can browse by setting Proxy in their Internet browser (Internet Explorer/Mozilla Firefox). Rainmail Proxy allows multiple users to share a Single Internet connection and also provides a way for Administrators to monitor and if required restrict, Internet access. 

Rainmail Server supports Auto as well as Manual Proxy configuration. In Auto configuration, the browser automatically detects Proxy settings. Auto configuration works based on DNS and Rainmail Server needs to be specified as DNS Server for the client PC. For manual configurations, the following parameter can be used:
