HOW TO USE THE POP3 AND SMTP PLUGIN



Ozeki Message Server enables client software installed on the network,  to send and receive SMS messages over a POP3 link. In order to make this possible for the clients, the POP3 plugin needs to be installed and configured in Ozeki Message Server.

POP3 PLUGIN INSTALLATION
In the following part we will show the easy process of the plugin installation.

Figure 1 - Plugin installation

New plugins can be installed by choosing  Installed Plugins from the Plugin menu. (Figure 1.) 

Figure 2 - Available plugins for installation

In the "Available plugins for installation" window click on the POP3 plugin install  link and the installation process will start. (Figure 2, Figure 3.).

Figure 3 - Wait until the installation process finishes.

Figure 4 - Starting the conifugration

After installation you'll see the POP3 plugin appearing on the list of plugins in the "Currently installed plugins" screen. On this form you can start the configuration by clicking on the Configure link. (Figure 4.)

PLUGIN CONFIGURATION

Figure 5 - Automatic startup

To start the configuration, click on the Configure URL and type the number of the POP3 port into the Port: text box. The POP3 server built into the plugin will listen on this port. If you would like the POP3 server of the plugin to start automatically when the Ozeki Message Server software starts, place a checkmark into the "Autoconnect on startup" checkbox and press Ok. (Figure 5.)

STARTING THE PLUGIN

After the plugin has been installed, you need to start it. The startup process means that the plugin allocates the configured POP3 port and starts to listen on it for incoming connections. You can start the Ozeki Message Server  POP3 plugin by clicking on "Connect" in the "Currently installed plugins" screen (Figure 6., Figure 7.).
