IGetMail Automatically Downloads email and forwards your email to your Exchange Server or remote SMTP Server

IGetMail - Overview

What is IGetMail?

IGetMail is a Windows utility that automatically downloads POP3 email messages from multiple remote servers, to a single, local Microsoft Exchange Server.  IGetMail works with your Exchange Server (or other SMTP-compliant email server) to automate the downloading of email from multiple remote servers.

When you have a Microsoft Exchange Server AND you are using an Internet Service Provider (ISP) to host your company's Internet domain or website, you will experience an email routing problem.  Your employee's incoming email messages are sent to the ISP's computer that is hosting your domain.  These messages are stored on your ISP's server, waiting for YOU to pull the messages down.

IGetMail solves this email routing problem for you.  It automatically retrieves the emails from the ISP's remote servers and forwards these messages to your local Microsoft Exchange Server.  And it runs according to a time schedule that you define.  Once IGetMail sends the messages to your Exchange Server, your local email server can complete its job and route the emails accordingly.

IGetMail can download messages sent to multiple Internet domains.  This is designed for companies that receive email addressed to one or more domains.  IGetMail downloads and sorts emails sent to "catch all accounts" or Internet domain accounts; forwarding the sorted mail as required by Exchange Server; which in turn distributes them appropriately.  IGetMail also supports downloading of messages from multiple individual accounts.  And IGetMail is designed to streamline your email collection process when you have employees using accounts established with third-party email suppliers, such as Yahoo or Gmail.

How Does IGetMail Work?

IGetMail systematically performs the following tasks:

  • Checks for new emails at multiple remote servers as fast as every 20 seconds.  IGetMail initiates connections with one or multiple remote servers to see if you have any new messages.  You can define different schedules to check for new incoming email.  IGetMail can pull email from multiple accounts simultaneously so you get your email fast.
  • Downloads & stores your new email messages.  When IGetMail finds new messages, it downloads them from the remote email servers.  IGetMail stores a copy of these messages in order to deliver them immediately to your Exchange Server.  And  IGetMail can replay messages if your Exchange Server experiences any interruption in service.
  • Sorts & sends new messages to your local SMTP / Exchange Server.  IGetMail can sort the email before delivery to your local Exchange Server.  This is important because Exchange Server requires that the messages be presorted. After sorting, IGetMail sends the messages to your Exchange Server which in turn, delivers them to the appropriate email accounts.

Everyday, thousands of corporations, non-profits, and Government agencies use IGetMail software to download their email from remote Servers!  You can too!
