Question / Problem

it is possible to shape smart so that it leaves the mail on the server when it is connected?

Answer / Solution

In the manual of SmartPOP2Exchange you can this about your question: Q:    I want to leave all messages on my POP3account in order to use as a backup. Is it possible?
A:    No this isn 't possible. We do not recommendthis setup, because a POP3 is usually not designed to hold large amounts ofmails and can get extremely slow. However you can use the rules engine ofSmartPOP2Exchange V6 to send a copy of every incoming message to any emailaddress you want. So maybe you can create a "backup" Exchange accountand store your messages there. For leaving mails on server the IMAP protocolshould be used. IMAP is also supported by SmartPOP2Exchange.
