Mail for domain

Additional domain administrators

These features are implemented with the help of API: add_admin.xml, get_admins.xml and del_admin.xml methods accordingly. These methods are reviewed in detail below.

Add an additional administrator

If you want to transfer management of the mailboxes on your domain (creation, deletion, password change, etc.) to a different person, you can include this person in the list of additional domain administrators. Access to domain management can only be provided to an account in the yandex.com domain.

To add an additional administrator to the domain:

  1. Log in to My domains with the username used to connect the domain to Yandex.Mail.

  2. In the same browser window, enter https://pddimp.yandex.ru/get_token.xml?domain_name=:yourdomain.:com:: to replace :yourdomain.:com:: for the name of your domain.

  3. Save the received token (value of attribute token).

  4. Enter https://api.domain.yandex.com/api/multiadmin/add_admin.xml?domain=yourdomain.com&token=yourtoken&login=adminlogin in the browser, replacing yourdomain.com with the name of your domain, yourtoken with the token received above, and adminlogin with the username of the additional administrator. In this case, only the first part of the user's email address is the login.

Attention! Be careful to type the correct username for the additional administrator, otherwise you may give some unknown person access to all your mailboxes. It is impossible to assign domain management access to an account located on the domain. Only a Yandex username that isn't linked to that domain can be used as an additional administrator. After calling the method you need to exit the account the domain was connected using, log in as an additional administrator and check that the domain appeared on the My domains page.
Note. If you see an empty page when you go to one of the indicated addresses, it is possible that your browser is hiding the xml-code. To view the code, right-click on the page and select the menu item View page code or view the original code in a different way.

To activate the list of usernames you have provided additional administrator rights to:

  2. Enter https://api.domain.yandex.com/api/multiadmin/get_admins.xml?domain=yourdomain.com&token=yourtoken into the browser, replacing yourdomain.com for your domain and yourtoken for the token you received earlier.

Delete the additional administrator

To remove additional administrator rights from any username:

  1. Log in to My domains with the username used to connect the domain to Yandex.Mail.

  2. Enter https://api.domain.yandex.com/api/multiadmin/del_admin.xml?domain=yourdomain.com&token=yourtoken&login=adminlogin into the browser, replacing yourdomain.com for your domain, yourtoken for the token you received earlier, and adminlogin for the additional administrator's username that you want to remove domain management rights from. In this case, only the first part of the user's email address is the login.
