the POP3 plugin installation.

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

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 pluginto start automatically when the Ozeki Message Server software
starts, place a checkmark into the "Autoconnect on startup"
checkbox and press Ok. Place chech mark into
the Require user autentication checkbox if you would like to receive
status report. In other case the status report will go back to every user's
Inbox (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 SMTP port and starts to listen on it for incoming
connections. You can start the Ozeki Message Server SMTP plugin
by clicking on "Connect" in the "Currently installed plugins" screen (Figure 6
, Figure 7 .).

After you have clicked on the Connect URL, you may use the Refresh this page link to check the connection
