Hi,

Anybody know how to retrieve emails from personalised folders in webmail? that is other than forwarding them to yourself.

Cheers

Webmail Retrieving emails from folders

You should be able to get them using imap. When you set up the account in your mail client choose IMAP instead of POP3, and use the incoming server address "imap.plus.net".

Your username and password are the same as normal.

Webmail Retrieving emails from folders

Hi,

I can get to a folder I created as a Test under IMAP using IMAP from my email client but all my emails are not under IMAP folders they are under folders that I access logging into POP3 on the webmail and I can't see these.

Thanks

Webmail Retrieving emails from folders

If you made the folders in POP3 mode, unfortunately they will only be accessible from webmail itself, so you'll need to forward them to yourself.

This is really not a wierd request, all I want to be able to do is download the emails that are in my mailbox hosted by plusnet!

Surely I can't be the first person to want to do this!

Please can somebody from plusnet justify why this is not possible as it is such a simple request.


Thanks
