The RPOP Module can be used when the CommuniGate Pro Server has a dial-up connection with dynamically assigned IP address, and thus the Server cannot receive mail via SMTP. The RPOP Module polls the specified remote host (ISP) accounts, retrieves messages and stores them in the Server mailboxes.
Users with several mail accounts on several systems can instruct the RPOP Module to poll those accounts, so all their mail is collected in their CommuniGate Pro Account.
The RPOP Module supports Unified Domain-Wide accounts. A Domain-wide account is an account on the ISP or any other host that collects all messages sent to your Domain. The RPOP Module retrieves all messages from such an account and distributes them based on the addressing information in the message header fields. The RPOP Module can poll several Unified Domain-Wide accounts.
The RPOP Module activity can be limited using the TCP Activity Schedule. The Module does not poll any remote account till the TCP Activity Schedule allows the Server to initiate outgoing network connections.
