76.0 Adding POP3 and IMAP4 Accounts to GroupWise

Before you add a POP3 or IMAP4 account to GroupWise, you need to know the type of mail server being used (POP3 or IMAP4), your account name and password, and the name of the incoming and outgoing mail servers. You can get this information from your Internet service provider (ISP) or network administrator. Microsoft Secure Password Authentication is supported for accessing Exchange servers and MSN accounts.

You can add a POP3 or IMAP4 account only if the Accounts menu is displayed. The Accounts menu is displayed if you are in Caching mode or if your administrator allows POP and IMAP or NNTP on your GroupWise system.

  1. Click Accounts > Account Options.

  2. Click Add.

  3. Select the desired account type, and then type an account name.

  4. Provide the email address and password for the account.

    If the provider is recognized, the incoming and outgoing mail server information will be provided for you. If it is an unknown email provider, the Incoming Mail Server and Outgoing Mail Server fields will appear, and you will need to provide this information.

  5. Select whether to upload the new account to the GroupWise Mailbox, and then click Next.

  6. Select the folder to use for the account, or create a new folder.

  7. Click Finish.

After you add a POP3 or IMAP4 account, you might also need to configure it to allow connections to GroupWise. For example, to allow POP3/IMAP4 downloads in Gmail, see Check Gmail through other email platforms in the Gmail Help.
