The Mail Collector automatically retrieves e-mails from other e-mail mailboxes and moves them to your mail.com mailbox. You have the following options when creating the Mail Collector:
If you have configured a Mail Collector, you can also use the external e-mail address as the sender address in an e-mail.
The Mail Collector works in a similar manner to an e-mail program such as Outlook or Thunderbird: e-mails are accessed via POP3 and then deleted depending on the server setting. All your e-mails will be retrieved after the Mail Collector has been set up. Afterwards, the Mail Collector will only retrieve the new e-mails that you receive.
If possible, the e-mails are accessed with SSL encryption and then checked for spam. In addition, you can define rules for how the collected e-mails are sorted. However, entries in the whitelist will not be applied during collection.
Some e-mail providers reduce POP3 capability. Collecting messages through POP3 may therefore only be allowed at specific periods of time or after activating the POP3 function. Find out whether the relevant provider has any restrictions. For this reason, the Mail Collector is not available with some providers.
E-mails retrieved by the Mail Collector are checked for spam. Spam protection will only ignore entries on your whitelist.
