Introduction.

In this section we present use and setup instructions for a variety of E-mail clients.

E-mail Efficiency

It is extremely important that you set your E-mail program configurations properly. Improper mail settings on your POP may cause your mail server space to fill up quickly and you could waste your allotted space with unwanted and duplicate E-mails. Plus, if you run out of E-mail disk space, you will not receive E-mail that is sent to you and it will be returned to the sender.

Additional Users

If you have additional coworkers using your mail server, you will need to either educate them how to properly set their own E-mail configurations, or perhaps you can do it for them.

Follow these guidelines to ensure that you, and your coworkers, are using your E-mail POP space in the most efficient manner. If you need help configuring your POP accounts to work with your E-mail client, please see the Client Configuration section below.

Maintaining Accounts.

Leaving And Removing Messages

Most E-mail programs give you the option to leave copies of all downloaded E-mail in the POP box. This option is very useful if you want to be able to read your E-mail from two different E-mail programs or locations. However, it may also result in you exceeding your allotment of disk space.

If you use two different computers on a regular basis, perhaps a desktop computer ("primary computer") at work and a laptop ("secondary computer") when you're out of the office, you should be very careful how you set up your mail.

Set your mail configurations on your primary computer so that you do not leave copies on your mail server after you download your messages. However, on your secondary computer, you should save copies on the server so you can still receive and download the same messages on your primary computer. This way, your mail server will be empty after you download your E-mail messages to your primary computer.

Note: Making sure to download all of your mail from the server to your local machine, or primary computer, is a good way to keep your mail space usage low.

Client Configuration.

Below is a list of commonly used E-mail programs with instructions to leave copies of messages on your server, or remove them once you download your E-mail to your local computer.
