The CommuniGate Pro RPOP Module can poll POP accounts on remote hosts on behalf of the CommuniGate Pro Account users. For each CommuniGate Pro Account several external POP accounts (RPOP records) can be specified. RPOP records can be specified by Server and Domain Administrators, using the WebAdmin Interface. Open the Account Settings pages and open the RPOP page in the Mail section:
If an Account has the CanModifyRPOP setting enabled, the Account user can modify the Account RPOP records via using the WebUser Interface, or a XIMSS client.
Poll: This option specifies how often the RPOP Module should poll the remote account. Set this option to Never to remove this RPOP record. If you set this option to Disabled, the RPOP record is not removed, but the remote account is not polled.
Account: This option specifies the mail account name at the remote host.
at Host: This option specifies the exact name of the POP server that should be polled. Please note that this could be the name of a specific computer (as specified in DNS A-records), not just a generic domain name of the provider system. For example, if the provider has the domain name provider.com, its POP server is usually named mail.provider.com or pop.provider.com. Consult with your provider.
Note: Standard POP servers accept incoming connections on the TCP port 110. If you need to poll an account on a remote POP server that uses a non-standard port, specify the port number after the host name, using the colon (:) symbol as the separator: pop.provider.com:111
Password: The password to use to log into the remote account.
Leave; If this option is selected, the RPOP Module does not delete messages from the remote mailbox. Instead, it remembers the UID (Unique IDentifier) of the retrieved messages, and the next time the RPOP Module polls this remote account, it does not retrieve messages that have the same UIDs. If you want to use this option, verify that the remote POP server supports the UIDL command.
Note: messages UIDs are stored in the Account File Storage, in the private/rpopids/name text files, where name is the RPOP record name.
APOP: If this option is selected AND the UseAPOP RPOP Module option is enabled AND the target host advertises APOP capability in its initial prompt, the RPOP Module uses the secure APOP method for authentication on that remote host.
TLS: If this option is selected, the RPOP Module tries to establish a secure (SSL/TLS) connection with the remote host.
Note: Standard POP servers accept incoming secure connections on the TCP port 995. If you need to poll an account on a remote secure POP server that uses a non-standard port, specify the port number after the host name, using the colon (:) symbol as the separator: pop.provider.com:9786
Mailbox: This option can specify some Account Mailbox name. If some name is specified, then the retrieved messages are immediately store
