Manual collection of email from ISP?

Hi,

Used VPOP3 v1.4 many years ago during employment with a previous company and would like to do the same for my new employer.

For reasons I needn't go into here, having VPOP3 collect mail from our ISP on a regular schedule wouldn't always be ideal, so I was wondering if VPOP3 Enterprise v7 still has the option for manual collection? I recall this option was chosen via a "Connect Now" button in the old (v1.4) version of the software.

Thanks in advance

Alan

Yes, you can still set collection to manual only and use "connect now" to trigger a collection.

Many thanks Paul,

However, I'm sure you can guess my next question(s)? Could you please explain where I would set collection to "Manual" and also where I might find "Connect Now".

In Mail Connectors -> Connector Schedule, simply don't have any (enabled) schedules. Then VPOP3 won't automatically connect, and you'll have to connect manually.

To 'Connect Now', either to go Status -> Server Status and press 'Connect Now', or right-click the Status Monitor (the VPOP3 icon in the Windows task-tray) and select 'Connect Now' (just like in v1.4, if I can remember that far back ;-) )
