Use the WebAdmin Interface to configure the RPOP Module. Open the Mail pages in the Settings realm, then open the RPOP pages.
Log: Use the Log setting to specify what kind of information the RPOP Module should put in the Server Log. Usually you should use the Major (message transfer reports) or Problems (message transfer and non-fatal errors) levels. But when you experience problems with the RPOP Module, you may want to set the Log Level setting to All Info: in this case protocol-level or link-level details will be recorded in the System Log as well. When the problem is solved, set the Log Level setting to its regular value, otherwise your System Log files will grow in size very quickly.
The RPOP Module records in the System Log are marked with the RPOP tag.
Processes: When you specify a non-zero value for this setting, the RPOP Module starts to connect to the remote hosts and retrieve mail from accounts on those hosts. The setting is used to limit the number of simultaneous connections the RPOP Module can initiate.
Use APOP: The RPOP can use the secure APOP authentication method when connecting to hosts that support this feature. If for any reason you want the RPOP Module to always use the "clear text" passwords, disable the Use APOP option.
Source IP Address: This option selects the default source network address for outgoing POP3 connections. You can allow the server OS to select the proper address or your can explicitly select one of the server IP addresses as the default source network address.
Use Domain IP Addresses: This option selects source network addresses for outgoing POP3 connections. If this option is selected, the RPOP Module will use the first Assigned IP Address for the Domain the RPOP record belongs to, and if the Domain Assigned IP Addresses can be used for outgoing connections. If this option is not selected, or if the Domain does not have any Assigned IP Address, the RPOP Module uses the default source network address.
Delay Failed Hosts: When the RPOP Module fails to connect to an external host, it marks the host as "failed" and stops polling all accounts on that host. The option specifies when the RPOP Module should try to poll the failed host again.
Delay Failed Account: When the RPOP Module fails to open a mailbox (wrong password, remote mailbox is locked, etc.), or if the connection fails when the Module retrieves messages from a remote account, the Module delays polling of this Account for the specified period of time.
Allow Self-Poll: Very often CommuniGate Pro users misunderstand the concept of remote account polling and specify their own CommuniGate Pro accounts as the "remote" accounts to be polled. This creates message loops and wastes Server resources. If this option is not selected, the RPOP Module checks the network address of the remote POP server it has to connect to. If that address is one of the CommuniGate Pro Server own network addresses, the "remote" account is not polled.
