SMTP Client in hMailServer (Mailserver to Mailserver)

Post by olger901 » 2005-03-05 13:44

Hello all,

I currently got the following situation:

1 I got a mailserver somewhere in the US (at the company where I am hosted) where alot of mail comes in.
2 I would like hMailServer to be able to retrieve those mails from that mailserver to hmailserver (with poll now option would even be better) and that hMailServer would send them to the inboxes of the right persons.

Kinda like the Mercury SMTP Client system.

The SMTP protocol is only used for delivery. hMailServer can't connect to another server and download messages using SMTP. POP3 is used for this.

You know that hMailServer 4.0 has the ability to download messages from other servers using POP3?

It would be very useful to develop a script or something else that could provide possibility to collect emails from other pop3 mailboxes and distribute them locally according to recipient's email, subject or something similar.

I vote for this
Thank You! :)

I think ETRN couldn't be implemented by using script. I'm right ? :s
