IMAP

By selecting an IMAP account in the Navigation Pane you open the IMAP form.

 

IMAPForm

 

Common settings:

 

Send messages...

Enable "catch all" accounts in SmartPOP2Exchange. If set, SmartPOP2Exchange will search for a destination address in the message instead of using the address in the email field of the SMTP settings. The email field of the SMTP account will be used as a fallback address in case SmartPOP2Exchange can't find any recipient in the message or the SMTP server does not accept it.

Server (IMAP)

Enter the name of the IMAP server SmartPOP2Exchange gets the messages from.

Port

Sets or changes the port of the IMAP server.

Mailbox

Enter IMAP mailbox folder which should be checked by SmartPOP2Exchange. (Default: INBOX)

Username

Enter your username for the IMAP server. SmartPOP2Exchange needs it to identify the IMAP account on the server.

Password

Sets or changes your password for the IMAP server.

Use secure (SSL)...

If checked a secure (SSL) connection will be used to download mail. SSL support depends on the provider.

Test connection

Press this button to test if SmartPOP2Exchange can establish a connection to your IMAP account.

Account enabled

Enables or disables the IMAP account.

 

 

Advanced settings:

Individual interval and timeout

 

Timeout

Sets a specific connection-timeout for the current IMAP account.  

Use default value

Set this option, if you want to use the global timeout specified in the Configuration form.

Interval

Sets a specific download interval (similar to the interval on the Configuration form) for the current IMAP account.

Download messages

marked as 'read'

If checked, SmartPOP2Exchange will also download messages that are marked as 'read'

Leave messages on server

Advises the SmartPOP2Exchange to leave the mail on the IMAP server. The mail will not be deleted from the server after successful delivery.

Mark delivered messages as 'read'

This option is only available when "Leave messages on server" is used.

SmartPOP2Exchange will mark the downloaded mail as "read" on your IMAP server.

Delete mail older than ... days

If you've activated the option Leave messages on server, you can set here how long your old messages are stored on the server. If you set this value to "0", the messages will never be deleted.

Replicate mail

If you download mail from a catch-all account use this option to let SmartPOP2Exchange replicate a mail for each recipient of your domain if your providers server does not keep one mail for each recipient in catch-all accounts mailbox.

Reset history ...

This button resets the history of the delivered messages. It causes a one-time retrieval of all mail on the IMAP server and only new mail thereafter.

 

If you want to reset the IMAP form press the Undo button.
