IGetMail - Easy Installation Steps

Do you want to look at what is involved with installing and configuring IGetMail?  Good idea!  This page walks you through the steps you will go through when downloading, installing and configuring IGetMail on your computer. 

  1. Click here to access the IGetMail software download.
  2. Please fill out the Download Request form so we can get to know you.  We do not require you to input a lot of information, but we really appreciate it when you provide your real name and email address. When you provide this information, we can better assist you if you contact us with any technical support questions that you may have.  Press the Submit button.
  3. Press Run.
  4. Now you see the opening screen to the Installation Wizard.  Press Next to proceed.



     
  5. At the License Agreement screen, press I Agree and then press Next.



     
  6. At the Software Installation Folder, you may accept the default installation location as suggested below or change it another location.



     
  7. At the Storage Location dialog, we recommend that you accept the default location recommended by IGetMail.  This is where IGetMail will keep a copy a limited archive of your downloaded email.  Please select a storage location that is fixed.  Do not use a removable or external drive because if this drive is unavailable, IGetMail will not be able to download your email.



     
  8. Review the Summary information.  If you would like to make any changes before IGetMail is installed on your computer, you can press the Back button.  If you would like IGetMail to start copying its program files now, press Next.



     
  9. IGetMail shows you a progress bar while installing its program files to your computer.  When all of the files have been copied to your computer, you will be able to press the Next button.



     
  10. Now that you have IGetMail installed, you see another Welcome screen.  This is the start of what we call "The First Time Run" portion of configuring IGetMail.  Notice that the title bars now include the word "Setup."



     
  11. In order for IGetMail to download your POP3 email from remote servers, IGetMail needs to collect some information about these POP3 email accounts.  Press the Add Account button now.


     
  12. IGetMail needs to be able to login to this particular remote POP3 email server in order to collect your email.  On the Configure Remote POP3 Accounts dialog, enter the Server Name or IP Address of the remote POP3 email server.  And be sure to provide the User Name and Password associated with this account.

    If this account uses SSL/TLS encryption - be sure to check/tick the "Use SSL/TLS" option.  (Click here to read more information about SSL/TLS.)

    Press the Test Login... button after you have provided the name of the remote server, your login credentials, and the port number used to access this server and whether or not SSL/TLS is utilized.  IGetMail will try logging into your remote email account just to make sure it can communicate properly.  If you receive an error message indicating that IGetMail could not access the server, please double-check this information, make any changes needed and press the Test Login... button again.  Once you have received a message indicating a successful test login, press Next.



     
  13. What type of POP3 Account is this?  You have 2 choices - your account is either a "catch all" account or an "individual" account.  Catch all accounts hold email for more than one person.  Individual accounts hold mail for just one person.  Let's assume your the POP3 Account is a "catch-all" account - it receives email for you and your coworkers.

    Select the "Catch All" account type and press the Add Domain button.



     
  14. On the Internet Domain Name dialog, enter one Internet domain name associated with the email that gets sent to this catch all account in the top portion of the dialog.  In the lower portion, you can specify if you need IGetMail to perform domain mapping on your incoming email.  Domain mapping is handy when you receive email addressed to a domain that is different than the default domain used by your Exchange Server / Active Directory.

    To follow along with our example, let's select the option to "Translate the email addresses to the default domain."  We did this because MyInternetDomainName.com is different than the default domain set up in our Exchange Server - which you will see a little later on.  Press OK. 




    After you press OK, you can see the domain that you have added to this POP Account.  If your catch all account receives email addressed to multiple domains, you can press the Add Domain button again to add another domain name to the list. 



     
  15. IGetMail can leave a copy of the email at the remote email server.  Keep in mind that the remote email server needs to support this capability and you have to have an account at the email server with enough storage space to leave the email there.  If you do not know if your Email Provider supports leaving email at their servers, you will need to contact them for more details.

    To follow along with our example, we are going to assume that your Email Provider has the ability to leave email at the server, so you want to check/tick the option to "Leave a copy of the email on the POP3 server."  You may change the default number of days if you would like to keep more or less email.

    Why would you want to leave a copy of the email at the remote email server?  This allows remote users to access the email in this POP Account while keeping another copy locally (in the office - on the Exchange Server).

    Press Finish.



     
  16. Now you have one POP3 account inside IGetMail's Account list. 


     
  17. But, for our example, let's say that you also have another POP3 account to add to IGetMail.  This time the POP3 Account you need to add is what we refer to as an "individual account."  This account receives email for just one person.  To add this we press the Add Account button and enter information about how to access this POP3 account as seen below.

    To access this POP Account, the name of the remote server is "mail.smtp.YourISP.net."  We have entered our login credentials and note that we have checked/ticked the "Use SSL/TLS" option.  When we did this, IGetMail changed the Port number accordingly.

    Be sure to use the Test Login... button to make sure IGetMail can login to this POP3 Account successfully.  Then press Next.



     
  18. On the Account Type dialog, we check/tick the "Individual Account" option as seen below.  Note that we need to enter the local email address within your Exchange Server that IGetMail will send the remote POP3 email to.  Because the email in this POP3 account is all for one person, it will all get delivered to just one person who has an account on your Exchange Server / Active Directory.



     
  19. IGetMail can leave a copy of the email at the remote email server.  Keep in mind that the remote email server needs to support this capability and you have to have an account at the email server with enough storage space to leave the email there.  If you do not know if your Email Provider supports leaving email at their servers, you will need to contact them for more details.

    To follow along with our example, we are going to assume that your Email Provider has the ability to leave email at the server, so you want to check/tick the option to "Leave a copy of the email on the POP3 server."  You may change the default number of days if you would like to keep more or less email.

    Why would you want to leave a copy of the email at the remote email server?  This allows remote users to access the email in this POP Account while keeping another copy locally (in the office - on the Exchange Server).

    Press Finish.



     
  20. Now we have 2 remote POP3 Accounts setup in IGetMail's Account List.  For our example, we are ready to proceed, so we press the Next button.



     
  21. Now we are ready to define access to your local Exchange Server (STMP compliant server).  On the Email Server Information dialog, enter the name or IP address of your Exchange Server.  If you have an Exchange Server that is configured to require user login authentication, you may check/tick this option and enter the login credentials associated with an email account on your Exchange Server that is already setup with the rights to receive email.

    If your Exchange Server is configured to require SSL/TLS, be sure to check/tick the "Use SSL/TLS" option.  (Click here to read more information about SSL/TLS.)

    Press the Test Login... button to verify that IGetMail has access to your Exchange Server.  If you receive an error message indicating that IGetMail could not access the server, please double-check this information, make any changes needed and press the Test Login... button again.  Once you have received a message indicating a successful test login, press Next.


     
  22. Your initial IGetMail setup is now complete!  Press Finish to proceed to the Accounts Panel screen.  At this point, IGetMail is configured to start downloading the POP3 email from the 2 POP3 Accounts that we specified above and send this mail to your Exchange Server. 

    IGetMail comes with 3 predefined schedules to follow in order to download your email.  The predefined schedules check for mail as described below:
    • Check for email every 5 minutes, all day long, Monday thru Friday.
    • Check for email once a minute, from 8am to 6pm, Monday thru Friday.

    Check for email every 15 minutes, all day long, on Saturday and Sunday only.


     

  23. And lastly, here is the IGetMail Accounts panel.  You can use the Accounts Panel to watch IGetMail download your email in real time.


    Download IGetMail now! You can get IGetMail setup in minutes!
