Remote Connector Mode

Remote Connector Mode is enabled from the Configuration menu.

CMail can be used as a POP3 collection gateway for SMTP only mail servers such as Exchange or Lotus Notes. In Remote Connector Mode, CMail Server will collect mail from the Internet via POP3 and forward any mail directly to the SMTP only server. 

Note: Enabling Remote Connector Mode disables CMail Server's POP3 client and SMTP services. Inadvertently enabling this feature will result in clients failing to collect mail. 

To Enable CMail as a POP3 connector:

  1. Select Enable Connector Mode from the Configuration > Remote Connector Mode menu.

  1. Enter the Host Configuration menu (Configuration > Host Configuration).
  2. Highlight a domain in the host/domains list and click Advanced.

  1. Enter the IP address of the other mail server in the To the following Host or User field. (You will need to repeat this step for all of the domains listed in the host/domains list.)
  2. Press OK to complete the setup.

To Disable CMail as a Remote Connector:

  1. Select Disable Connector Mode from the Configuration > Remote Connector Mode menu.

  1. Enter the Host Configuration menu (Configuration > Host Configuration).
  2. Remove the contents of the To the following Host or User field. (You will need to repeat this step for all of the domains listed in the host/domains list.)
  3. Press OK to complete the modifications.
