What's New in IGetMail Version 5.0
All Feature from Version 4 and below:
- SSL/TLS Support – IGetMail now supports both SSL and TLS access to both POP3 and SMTP servers. SSL/TLS support allows
IGetMail to pull email from ISPs that require secure access. Gmail no
longer supports SSL and is now requiring TLS support. If you have
experienced stoppages in your Gmail accounts, you will need to upgrade to
IGetMail Version 4.1 because Gmail has changed. IGetMail will try TLS
version 1.2 without RSA support to adhere to the latest security best
practices. If the email server does not support TLS 1.2, IGetMail will
try older versions of TLS then SSL to support older installations of email
- START TLS Support - IGetMail supports START TLS for both POP3 and
SMTP (Port 587).
- New User Interface – Previous version of IGetMail had a wizard-based User Interface.
Now, IGetMail has a
full user interface, allowing you to see the tasks that IGetMail performs as it pulls your email messages
to your primary account.
- Support for Many Versions of Exchange Server – IGetMail can be
used with all versions of Microsoft Exchange Server.
- Leave Email at the POP3 Server – You can now instruct IGetMail to leave email at your POP3 servers. Please
note that while IGetMail supports this feature, some servers do not. Yahoo
and Exchange fully support this feature. If you instruct IGetMail to leave
your email at a Gmail account, note that Gmail will keep the email
forever, so you may have to use a browser to delete the email periodically.
- SMTP Authentication – If your email server requires authenticated login, IGetMail can now log in to deliver the email.
- Concurrent Email Download – IGetMail can pull email from multiple email accounts at the same time. If
one account has a large message, it will not stop the rest of your accounts from receiving their emails.
- Duplicate Email Detection – IGetMail can check for the presence of duplicate email messages and
will filter out identical emails.
– You can now specify simple rules for IGetMail to use to
process your messages. Rules are used to correct for extra information that ISP may insert in your email that
cause non-delivery reports from being generated. You can also exclude addresses, do not deliver messages, forward
messages, etc. The rules allow you to correct for routine problems that need to be corrected,
but this feature
is not intended to replace an anti-spam or an anti-virus solution.
- Default Catchall Address – You can specify the email address that should receive email messages that
do not contain any routing information (e.g., emails that do not contain a
- Stored Email
– IGetMail now keeps a copy of the recently
downloaded and forwarded email messages. This feature gives you the opportunity to re-deliver messages if needed. If you make a
change in your configuration information, you can tell IGetMail to re-deliver the
emails using the corrected or
changed configuration. This feature is best used at initial setup so
that you do not lose any of your emails.
- Schedules – The scheduler has been expanded
so that you can have as many schedules as you want. You
can define what days and time you would like IGetMail to run.
- Faster Downloading – The new scheduler can run up to every 20 seconds to check your email.
However, while IGetMail can run that quickly, we have found that some POP3 servers cannot respond this
quickly, so you may need to adjust this rate based on your network and servers.
- Delivery Rates – You can set the number of messages that you want to deliver per connection to your local
email server. Some servers assume that they are under attack if they receive too many
emails in too short of a time span, so this is a
number that you may need to adjust to best fit your network.
- Message Logs – You can see recent events that IGetMail has
performed in the Message Logs.
- Improved Log Management – With previous versions of IGetMail, the trace logs would grow rapidly and could
consume a lot of free disk space. Now, the logs are constrained to recording only the most recent
500K of data to cap their size.
