How to configure POP3 Retrieval with SmarterMail

Pop Retrieval allows users to access email on another server through the SmarterMail Web interface, so their messages can be stored on a local mail server.

This feature is very useful when you want to migrate emails from a different server.

To get started, click the Settings button from the main toolbar, then select POP Retrieval from the My Settings tree view.

Click the New icon from the actions toolbar to add a new POP Retrieval account. You will be presented with these options:

  * Server Address
  * Port
  * Username
  * Password
  * Enable APOP Authentication
  * Leave Messages on Server
  * Requires SSL
  * Destination Folder

When creating a new POP account, users also have the option to select the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) checkbox for mail servers that require SSL. Two widely known SSL mail servers are Yahoo and Gmail.

Please note that POP3 Retrieval is not enabled by default. If you want to enable this option, please open a ticket with technical support.
