    Default [SOLVED] does zimbra support pop 3 collection

    Hi

    looking at moving a SBS exchange set up to zimbra.

    currently the exchange server performs pop collection and gets mail from different domains.

    Does zimbra open source offer this service?

    i've just built a test server and cant see this feature although i might be missing it...

    thanks

    Yes, it supports collection of external POP3 & IMAP accounts. Go to the user Preferences/Accounts tab and use the Add external Account Button - this is a per-user setting.

    Does the zimbra server not collect pop mail?

    Welcome to the forums pwcutajar,

    First a little background on account aggregation:
    -4.5.x supports external POP accounts in the web-client
    -5.0.x supports both external POP & IMAP accounts in the web-client (plus periodic checking - so you don't have to hit 'get mail')
    -Webmin/Fetchmail is another solution, an example: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/adminis...gregation.html

    I get the feeling that you mean automatic retrieval - to do so:
    su - zimbra
    zmprov mds user@domain.com [Data source external IMAP/POP account name] zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval 900s
    zimbraDataSourceMinPollingInterval is usually 60s or 1m or 2m & zimbraFeatureMailPollingIntervalPreferenceEnabled should be set to TRUE

    To cancel polling, set the attribute value to an empty string ("") or 0. Keep in mind that zimbraDataSourcePollingInterval gets inherited from the COS to the account to the data source. If a child object sets the value to "", it inherits the parent's value - if set to 0, it's turned off.

    To expose that for the end user you can vote for: Bug 22114 - Expose external account polling interval in UI

    Nobody seems to understand me but I think there will be a huge market for this, I will explain as an I want hopfully it will be clear

    I have one pc one pc/server and one laptop and one pop account.
    I want the pc/server to collect the mail and then use a mail client pref outlook from the pc or the laptop and always see the same contense i.e inbox, sent items calendar.

    can zimbra not do this?

    Thanks for your time

    Paul

    If I'm understanding you right - yes you can do that "Download messages to: Inbox" (instead of a new folder) -see attach pic

    You can use Zimbra Desktop (it's free!) for an experience much like the web-client.
    If you purchase the Network Edition (Compare ZCS Editions) you can use ZCO for Outlook.

    no i think you are missing pwcutajar's point.

    he doesnt want to use zimbra desktop

    he is asking if zimbra can do pop collection at server level just like exchange server can. so that as far as the user is concerned all that is happening is they are connection to exchange... nothing configured on the client side.
