Checking Other E-mail Accounts With NetMail

 

E-mail Proxy is a powerful feature of NetMail that can be used to collect e-mail from other POP or IMAP e-mail accounts, which you may have with other institutions or Internet Service Providers. Every three hours, the NetMail server collects e-mail from accounts specified in your proxy settings and delivers messages to your Inbox. The e-mail Proxy process runs automatically on the NetMail server every three hours, and does not depend on any specific mail client. Additionally, any filtering Rules that you have defined will also be applied to e-mail collected by the e-mail proxy.

  1. From the NetMail Web interface, click the Options icon and then click the Proxy settings tab.
  2. In the Host Name field, enter the POP3 or IMAP address of the mailbox from which you want NetMail to collect e-mail (pop3.myrealbox.com). This is usually the same address that you enter in Outlook Express to check your e-mail. This information can be obtained from your Internet Service Provider or the institution hosting your mail account.
  3. In the User Name field, enter your e-mail account's user name (not your NetMail account user name).
  4. In the Password field, type your password. Retype your password for verification.
  5. In the Type drop down-box, select POP3 or IMAP. This information can be obtained from the Internet Service Provider or the institution hosting your mail account.
  6. Check Leave on Server if you do not want NIMS Mail Proxy to delete messages from the remote e-mail account after it has retrieved them.
