    Default [SOLVED] download email from external pop server

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if there is already an Zimlet that allows a Zimbra user to connect to an external mail server to download emails into their Zimbra account?

    if there is not - how difficult would it be to create one?

    Thanks in advance.

    Dennis

    Already available...should have been able to find it in features somewhere....

    - Goto Preferences->Accounts->Add External Account
    Choose if you want POP or IMAP and fill in your info. Viola!

    Found it,
    Thanks, I spent all my time looking in the Administrator console for it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the forums,
    Account aggregation:
    -4.5.x supports external POP accounts in the web-client (Not that you care - you're on v5!)
    -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')

    Before you ask
    When you want to set it automatic:
    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.
