PageGate GetMail Basic Setup Transcript for Video:
Welcome to the tutorial on how to configure the basic options for the GetMail module for PageGate.

In this tutorial, we'll be going over the basic configuration for the GetMail module, including how to get PageGate to host an email domain and how to get PageGate to check an external email address.

The first step is to run the PageGate Admin, so go to your start menu, go to programs, find the PageGate program group, and left click on PageGate Admin.

Once the Admin comes up, left click on the + next to Interfaces.

Click on the + next to GetMail and left click on Settings.

Here in the settings of the GetMail module, you'll see the following fields.

The Local Domain field has two purposes for the GetMail Module: it allows the program to identify where its own outbound SMTP messages have come from and it also tells the program what Email Domain it should monitor.

The Postmaster field is optional, you don't necessarily have to enter any information here. However, if you are having PageGate host a domain, I would recommend entering the email address of your postmaster here.

The Relay All Mail option should be enabled if port 25 is closed on your network and you must use an external mail server to deliver, NOT receive, SMTP messages.

The Relay Server is the field that allows you to specify the mail server that PageGate should use to deliver, NOT receive, SMTP messages.

If port 25 is open, enter your primary and secondary DNS Servers into the DNS 1 and 2 fields. The program will then perform its own MX lookups and attempt to directly connect to the destination mail host.

The last field is the POP Interval. By default, the program checks for new email, or POPs, every 5 minutes.

If you're going to have PageGate host an email domain, you'll first need to have the hosting company for the domain redirect the MX record for the domain to the IP address of the PageGate Computer.

At this point, you can enter the domain into the Local Domain field.

Put a check in Enabled and left click on apply.

If hosting an email domain, after you Enable the GetMail module, all of your recipients and groups become valid email addresses on the domain.

In this example, I've entered tutorial.com as my domain. If I click I the + next to recipients, you'll see that I have a recipient named sales.

That means that if someone sends an email to sales@tutorial.com, PageGate will read the message in and deliver it to the sales recipient within the program.

The second primary function of the GetMail module allows you to tie an email address or email addresses to a recipient or group. This means that any time someone sends an email to that Email address, PageGate will read it in and send it to the recipient or group the address is tied to.

To do this, left click on the + next to Recipients or Groups.

Then left click on the + next to the recipient or group want to tie the email address or addresses to.

Left click on the Email subsection of that recipient or group.

In the Email subsection, you'll notice these fields.

The Forward Copy to field allows you to tell PageGate that every time this recipient or group is sent any message, a copy of that message should also be forwarded to the address you enter here.

The Enable POP Access to Messages option tells PageGate to host a POP mailbox for this recipient. This means that this recipient becomes a valid email address that any email program, such as Outlook or Eudora, can be configured to check.

If you Enable POP Access to Messages, enter the Password the user should enter to check their email.

To tie this recipient or group to an email address or addresses, left click on the POP Mail Collection button.

Here in the POP Mail Collection, left click on Add.

You'll need to enter the POP Mailbox for the email address you want the program to check. This can either be the prefix of the address or the full email address, please check with your mail host to verify which is required.

In the POP Password field, enter the password required to check this email address.

In the POP Server, enter the address for the POP Server hosting this mailbox.

Below that is the 'Remove Collected Mail from Server' option. If this is checked, PageGate will remove all mail read in from the mailbox once it has checked it.

After entering your settings and preferences, left click on Apply, then left click on Apply again.

After you do that, the program will check the email address you have specified and any email that comes in to that address will be delivered to this recipient or group.

This concludes the tutorial on how to configure the basic GetMail options in PageGate. For more tutorials, including how to configure the Advanced GetMail options, please visit our website, www.notepage.net
