Manual collection of email from ISP?

Hi,<br /> <br /> Used VPOP3 v1.4 many years ago during employment with a previous company and would like to do the same for my new employer.<br /> <br /> 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 &quot;Connect Now&quot; button in the old (v1.4) version of the software.<br /> <br /> Thanks in advance<br /> <br /> Alan

<br /> Yes, you can still set collection to manual only and use &quot;connect now&quot; to trigger a collection.

Many thanks Paul,<br /> <br /> However, I'm sure you can guess my next question(s)? Could you please explain where I would set collection to &quot;Manual&quot; and also where I might find &quot;Connect Now&quot;.<br /> <br /> Alan

In Mail Connectors -&gt; Connector Schedule, simply don't have any (enabled) schedules. Then VPOP3 won't automatically connect, and you'll have to connect manually.<br /> <br /> To 'Connect Now', either to go Status -&gt; 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 ;-) )
