Fetching emails from a POP3 server
Often, companies have to fetch their email from a POP3 server running at their ISP or any other company. This is typically the case where Xeams is running on a dynamic IP address or on a network that is not on the Internet all the time.
The following steps demonstrate how to fetch emails from a POP3 server.
- Log in to the Admin Console as admin
- Click Manage POP3 Fetcher under Server Management
- Click the link for New Account
- Follow the instructions on the screen to add a new POP3 account
Filtering Spam Using POP3
Although you could use a POP3 account to fetch messages from another system into Xeams, you lose a significant
amount of information that is crucial for filtering junk. In fact, you will lose about 60% of Xeams' filtering
capabilities when using this feature.
This happens because of the following reasons:
- Xeams cannot the check the reputation of the sender's IP address
- SPF and DKIM cannot be verified. It is very likely the message has been modified by the receiving SMTP server making DKIM signatures invalid.
- RBL servers cannot be used
