How to Upgrade Your IGetMail Software to Version 3.4
This information is for people who are currently using older IGetMail Versions 2.x
If you are currently using IGetMail Version 3.0,
through 3.3, you may download the
new 3.4 setup file and update your installation for no charge.
NOTE: Older IGetMail License Numbers are not compatible with IGetMail
Version 3.4. If you decide to upgrade to IGetMail Version 3.4 you will
need to purchase a new License Number for $129.00 USD
IGetMail Version 3.4 gives you new options and new features that were not
available in prior versions, so we encourage you to review the list of
"What's New in Version 3.4"
to read about the new features and see if any appeal to you.
If you see new features that you would like to use, you can download the
trial version and use it for 15-days. To try the new IGetMail Version 3.4, you
can download the 15-day trial version and install it over your existing IGetMail
Version 3.4 will read and use the settings that you are using in your current
version of IGetMail; so you will continue receiving your POP3 email without
disruption. Keep in mind that you will need to purchase a new license
to continue using IGetMail Version 3.4 past the 15-day trial period. Your
old license key will not work in Version 3.4 - you will need to
purchase a new IGetMail license key.
After downloading and installing the 15-day IGetMail trial software, you will need to run the new IGetMail
Administrator user interface to access the new features. For example, let's say your web hosting company
is now requiring SSL access to your POP3 email account. You can install IGetMail Version 3.4, which will read your current POP3 email account settings,
then you can run the IGetMail Administrator to activate the SSL option.
