POP3 Mailbox

With the POP3 Mailbox Import, e-mails can be imported from an e-mail mailbox via POP3 protocol.

The following steps are necessary to import e-mails via POP3 protocol:

Enter the access data for e-mail retrieval via POP3 (host, port, security, user name and password) and check the connection via Connection Test.
The access data required for the connection (especially host, port and security) can usually be obtained from your e-mail provider.

Select an already created container as the target for the import or create it via "Create New Container".

The ACLs can be used to grant access rights to an imported e-mail.
A user has one or more e-mail addresses.
If one of these addresses is entered in the ACLs, the user may access this e-mail in the MailDepot.
Usually, the sender and recipient addresses are entered in the ACLs, as these are located in the headers of an Internet e-mail.
However, other addresses can also be added statically.

Include mail header for ACL
All sender and recipient addresses from the mail header are used to determine the ACLs.
Both the "TO" and the "CC" addresses are taken into account.
This is also the default case.

Static ACL
To allow additional users to access the e-mails to be imported, additional e-mail addresses can be entered in the ACL.

Here you can select whether certain folders are to be excluded from the import or whether all folders are to be imported except for certain specified folders (this filter is deactivated / disabled by default).

With the message filter, e-mails can be further restricted for import by the selection criteria date and size.
