Registering an additional email address

In this section, we assume that your BSCW server is configured to allow registration by any­one without the assistance of a system administrator.

In this case, it may happen that you receive an email message asking you to register as a user of the very BSCW server that you are already using. The reason for this behaviour is that an­other user invited you to a shared workspace under a valid email address which is not the one, which you used, when you first registered with the BSCW server, and which consequently is not recognized by BSCW as belonging to your user name.

When you receive such a registration message, repeat the registration procedure and specify the same user name and password under which you are already registered. BSCW will send the URL of a form to your additional email address. In this form you may confirm that you indeed want to register this email address for your user name.

The additional email address will then be included in your personal details, which are shown when you select  Options    Profile    Show . With  Options    Profile    Change  you may enter further email addresses. For each of these addresses, the above registration procedure is carried out in order to ensure that the association of the address with your user name is valid.

The registration of further email addresses makes sense if you expect to be invited to BSCW workspaces under these addresses or if you want to upload documents via email from these addresses. In these cases, BSCW will be able to correctly associate your user name with any of these addresses. Regardless of the registration of secondary email addresses, BSCW will al­ways use your primary email address to send email messages to you, e.g. your daily work­space activity report.
