Difference between Infomaniak identifiers
This guide details the different identifiers used for access to Infomaniak.
Manager & kMail (Webmail)
The username and password used to connect to the Manager (administration console for your products) and to kMail webmail (online messaging interface to use one or more email addresses) are not necessarily the same as those used for an email account hosted by Infomaniak (see below), even if in both cases it is an email address and even if it is identical.
To use an email address, you must know at least its title and password. These may look like your Infomaniak connection identifier but in reality they are 2 different things.
In summary, you have:
- 1 identifier (in the form of an email address) and 1 password to access
- 1 password for each email address hosted at Infomaniak
These two pieces of information can be identical or not according to your choice or according to whether it has been unified or not. And if you change one, it won't necessarily change the other.
It is for example possible to connect to the Manager with an email address not managed by Infomaniak: email@example.com
This Infomaniak connection identifier will have its own password and the microsoft.fr address will have its own.
It's the same if the address was firstname.lastname@example.org and it was managed on the Infomaniak servers.
Similarly, the password used to connect to the Manager can be "pAssW8ox3C" while the password for your Infomaniak email address is, for example, "h6Kcy34rT".
