Roles and Privileges - Zoho Mail Control Panel

Zoho Mail Roles and Privileges

The roles available in Zoho Mail are Super Administrator, Administrator, and User roles. The members of the organizations can assume different roles in Zoho Mail, based on the requirement. 

The Email Super Administrator is by default the user who signs up and sets up the domain in Zoho Mail. The users are end-users, who just need to access the Mail, and do not need any admin capabilities like adding users and so on. The Administrator is a role provided to a user, who needs to manage users in the organization, in addition to the Super Administrator.

The Super Administrator can provide Administrator privileges to other users or change the Super Administrator of the organization to another Administrator in the Organization.

Change Role of a Zoho Mail member

You can change the Role of any user to admin and admin to a user.

  1. Login to Zoho Mail Admin Console
  2. Navigate to Users in the left pane, and click on the user you want to change from User to Admin.
  3. Under the Role option, click the Edit icon and select the role you would like to assign.
  4. Once done, click Update.

Change Super Admin

Even though the Super Admin, by default, is the user who initially set up your organization, it can be changed.

Things to note:

  1. There can only be one super-admin for an organization.
  2. The Super Admin role can be assigned only by the Super Admin.
  3. The member you want to make as Super Admin should already have the Admin role (custom Administrators are not eligible).

To change an Admin to Super Admin

  1. Login to Zoho Mail Admin Console
  2. Navigate to Security & Compliance in the left pane, and go to Roles and Privileges.
  3. Navigate to Roles and click Super Administrator
  4. Click Change Super Admin.
  5. A pop-up window will list all the Admins under your organization. Click Make Super Admin next to the member you would like to assign as super-administrator.

Once you choose a different super admin, the previous super admin's role will change to Admin.
