Mail collector

To manage mail accounts, which are located on other mail servers, you can use “Mail collector” in ICS CUBE. In the main window of it there are: “Add” button, “Turn on/off” button, search, mail collectors that already exist. To add a new mail collector, use the button “Add”, and a dialog window will appear.

In the dialog window you can set:

  • unordered List Itemthe name of the mail collector;
  • ip-address or domain name of the server from which you want to collect mail;
  • server type (POP3 or IMAP);
  • in case if secured connection is necessary, you can mark the checkbox “Use SSL”;
  • in the “login” and “password field” should be credentials of the remote mailbox from which you want to collect mail;
  • the receiver of collected messages (“Identify receiver automatically” or “Redirect to”);
  • the way to collect the messages in the “Collect” field (“all messages, delete messages from the server”, “only new messages, leave messages on the server”);
  • an interval between connections to the remote mail server to collect mail. By default it's every 5 minutes; minimum is every 5 seconds; maximum is every 24 hours.
  • max value of the amount of mail that will be collected in one session, by default it's 100 mail messages.

Mail collector works in two modes - “Identify receiver automatically” and “Redirect to”. The “Identify receiver automatically” mode is for situations when you have on your external mail server (for example,, where your mailbox exists (for example,, from which you collect mail, has some links to itself (for example,,, And in ICS CUBE mail server there is a domain, for example, and there are mailboxes like,, Then ICS CUBE mail collector in the “Identify receiver automatically” will collect mail messages from and automatically distribute them to,, depending on which link they came to (,, accordingly). In case if in the non-mandatory field the “Default mailbox” is set, then mail collector will move mail messages of which he wasn't able to identify the receiver, there. The “Redirect to” mode is for setting up one mailbox to which all collected messages will be placed.

After all fields being set and saved, the new mail collector will appear in the list of existed mail collectors. You can perform the following actions with it: “Delete”, “Edit”, “Clear” and “Collect”.
