About this task

Notes:

  • When SSL Email is enabled and you use POP-before-SMTP Authentication, the Metasys system uses port 995 to communicate to the mail server. Ensure that the mail server you are connecting to uses port 995 for secure socket layer connections for POP3 access.
  • When SSL Email is not enabled and you use POP-before-SMTP Authentication, the Metasys system uses port 110 to communicate to the mail server. Ensure that the mail server you are connecting to uses port 110 for non-encrypted POP3 access.
