FAQ Entry: Email System "POP Configuration" Setup

Recommended Posts

The meat of the "POP Configuration" (which can be accessed with both secure and insecure methods) is an 8x10 field matrix.

The Y Axis contains a row of column headings (in bold below), followed by ten separate rows or Entries, details on how to get mail from up to ten accounts (blank Entries are not collected from).

The following eight fields are columns along the X Axis:

POP Server (text, the name or IP Address of the mail server serving that email account's mail - use "popgate.cesmail.net" for MSN, MSN Hotmail, AOL, and/or Yahoo!)

Username (text, the Username for that account on that POP Server - use full email address for MSN, MSN Hotmail, AOL, and/or Yahoo!)

Password (text, the Password for that account on that POP Server)

Leave on Server (a checkbox, default unchecked - check it if you want mail to pile up for that account on its POP Server)

Use SSL (a checkbox, default unchecked - check it if you want to use Secure Sockets Layer to fetch that account's email)

Error Count (read-only number, how many errors have occurred in fetching email from that account - divide by 4 to get the approximate number of continuous hours of problems, default 0)

Last Error (read-only text, a short description of the last error encountered in fetching mail from that account, default "None")

Delete this Entry (a checkbox, default unchecked - check it if you want to delete the Entry)

Note: I adapted the above from my post http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...indpost&p=21547 in SpamCop Stopped POPping Mail.
