POP3 Support

POP3 is an electronic mail protocol used to retrieve messages stored on an Internet e-mail server. POP3 is a 'pull' protocol. Whenever a client wants to check for messages, it connects to its ISP and uses POP3 to login to its mailbox and 'pull' down its messages.

MailScan POP3 can work as a POP3 client on behalf of all your users. Every user in the organization is assigned their own email address (e.g.. user@example.com). Each user is also assigned a mailbox or one mailbox is used by the entire organization. At scheduled intervals MailScan POP3 logs into every mailbox and retrieves waiting messages. It then delivers them to the respective users on your SMTP Server/Gateway.

Figure 6.1 POP3 Config

This is the opening screen of POP3 Config. There are five tab pages: Accounts, Hosts, Config, Spam Control and Restrictions From Users. By default the tab page Config is displayed when you launch POP3 Config.
The next sections describe in detail about different tasks and how to validate fields.

Host for the user or mail recipient, resides with an account with your ISP. The tab allows you to assign for the mail recipient, a host, the POP3 account IP and the password. You can also select the method of download, Account, Wildcard or Mutli-POP.

To start Configuring Accounts:
Enter the Host Name or select host from the drop-down list and click New Account. Other fields in the tab are now enabled.
