It is intended for managing ​mail accounts located on other mail servers. The main window of the "​Mail ​fetcher" ​module displays ​the status ​of the service with the possibility to "Disable" ​(or "Enable" ​if the service is disabled)configured ​mail retrieversas well as the search bar and function buttons (add, delete, disable, edit, clear, retrieve).

-  * 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")+To configure access to third-party server, fill in the following fields: 
-  * an interval ​between ​connections ​to the remote mail server ​to collect mail. By default ​it'​s ​every minutes; minimum ​is every seconds; maximum ​is every 24 hours+  * Server - the IP-address or domain name of the server from which mail will be collected

 +==== Retriever clearing. ==== 
 +To delete information about previously collected emails, use the "​Clear"​ button.

-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"​.
