Role required to enable mailbox creation

Hi, I setup a system, created a local admin account with User Manager role in it (https://docs.cloudron.io/user-management/#user-manager), but he has no access to create mailboxes for the user - is there any way to enable that feature, without giving Admin permissions?
And just in case, as it's not quite clear in official documentation: e-mail mailboxes are backed up and will be restored in case of the disaster recovery, is that a correct assumption?
First for the backup, all mailboxes are part of the backup and thus can be restored. They are part of the platform backup or in Cloudron terms "box" backups.
For the role, there is currently no specific email role and the user manager role also does not apply here. So far we haven't seen much requests regarding those roles, so there is a lot to be improved I think. Also while reading your question, it may actually make a lot of sense to allow the usermanager role to also manage mail related things. Not sure yet, feedback welcome.
To answer your immediate question, the only way to do this is to grant admin rights for this user at the moment.
@nebulon thank you! It makes sense for me as well (usermanager role to manage user related things in overall).
That let separate things quite nicely and install Cloudron in more complex environments.
Hope you will make it sooner, rather than later - I'm looking forward to it!
@nebulon any updates?
@girish probably you can assist?
@potemkin_ai at the moment this is not on our immediate list for the next release. It needs further investigation what the side-effects are.
@nebulon got it, thank you!
