Welcome to the POP3 eMail component

POP3 eMail is a capture component used to retrieve email messages from a mail server that supports POP3 protocol. This component retrieves and processes email messages including any attachments from the designated mailbox one at a time. The content of each email message including any attachments will be retrieved and processed as a single job.

POP3 stands for Post Office Protocol, Version 3. POP3 is a mail protocol used only to retrieve mail (from a POP3 enabled mail server), not to send mail. This component uses the POP3 protocol over TCP to query a POP3 enabled mail server for new mail messages.

In order to use this component, a POP3 account name and its associated password for a specific mail server must be supplied. POP3 account name is a unique name of an electronic mailbox. This information must be unique so only the intended owner of a mailbox can gain access to it.
