    What is your USER_ID?

 

Please note by default we do not delete email from GroupWise after you pop it. To do that, please look at the options below:

The d option deletes the messages from the GroupWise mailbox after they have been downloaded to the POP3 client.

Options available?

Login options are appended to the user ID name with a colon character (:) between the user ID name and the switches:

Syntax: user_ID:switch

Example: User1:v=1

You can combine options by stringing them together after the user ID and the colon without any spaces between the options:

Syntax: user_ID:switch1switch2

Example: User1:v=1sdl=10

The syntax for the user ID options is not case sensitive. Please note that login options are not required. If you do not want to include any login options, just enter the user ID name in the text box, or following the USER command if you are using a Telnet application as your POP3 client.

Option

Explanation

Example

v=number between 1-31

The v option defines the POP3 client's view number. If multiple POP3 clients access the same GroupWise mailbox, each client must use a different view number in order to see a fresh mailbox.

For example, if two POP3 clients access a mailbox and the first client downloads the unread messages, the second client will not be able to download the messages unless it is using a different view number than the first client.

If this option is not used, the default value is 1.

User_ID:v=1

d

The d option deletes the messages from the GroupWise mailbox after they have been downloaded to the POP3 client.

User_ID:d

p

The p option purges the messages from the GroupWise mailbox after they have been downloaded to the POP3 client.

User_ID:p

t=1-1000

The t option defines the download period, starting with the current day. For example, if you specify 14, then only messages that are 14 days old or newer will be downloaded. If this option is not used, the default value is 30 days.

User_ID:t=14

n

The n option downloads messages in RFC-822 format rather than the default MIME format.

User_ID:N

m

The m option downloads messages in MIME format. This is the default.

User_ID:M

s

The s option presets the file size when the STAT command is executed. If the users' mailbox contains a lot of messages or large messages, it can take a long time to calculate the file size. With this option, the STAT command will always report an artificial file size of 1, which can save time.

User_ID:S

l=1-1000

The l option limits the number of messages to download for each POP3 session. For example, if you want to limit the number of messages to 10, you would enter l=10. If this option is not used, the default value is 100 messages.

User_ID:L=10
