Setting

Function

Enabled

When the Enabled checkbox is checked, it tells the PageGate server to run the GetMail module.

Local Domain

This is a multi-purpose field. If the GetMail module is only being configured to send or check email, this field needs to be the sending domain. For example, if your email address was support@notepage.com, you would put notepage.com in the Local Domain as that is the domain the messages are being sent from.

 

If the GetMail module is being configured to function as a POP3 server, the Local Domain needs to be set to the domain used by PageGate when receiving email. This is an internet domain name, not a Microsoft networking domain. Only email with an address in this domain will be accepted by PageGate. This setting must be a valid domain name for to work properly (Note: an IP address can be used here instead of a domain name, if email is addressed to match. This is commonly done during testing when a domain name has not yet been assigned to this machine).

Postmaster

The Postmaster setting needs to be set to a valid email address. This email address is sent all warnings, alerts, and bad messages generated by the GetMail module. Leaving this field blank will drop all messages that would normally go to the postmaster. The Postmaster setting is also used when no valid Sender's Information is present in an outbound email message.

Relay All Mail

This option should only be checked if port 25 is not open on your network. To determine whether port 25 is open or closed on your network, please run a Port Scan.

Relay Server

This field allows you to specify a relay server for SMTP messages to be routed through. This option should only be used if port 25 is not open on your network. To determine whether port 25 is open or closed on your network, please run a Port Scan.

DNS Server 1

This field allows you to specify the primary DNS server for SMTP delivery and is only valid if port 25 is open on your network. To determine whether port 25 is open or closed on your network, please run a Port Scan.

DNS Server 2

This field allows you to specify the secondary DNS server for SMTP delivery and is only valid if port 25 is open on your network. To determine whether port 25 is open or closed on your network, please run a Port Scan.

POP Interval

If any of the GetMail Module's POP functions are used, this setting determines how often (in minutes) their processes occur.

 

Expanding Settings will display the following menu:
