How the Mail Collector Service works
In order to be able to use the Mail Collector Service, you first have to create an email account with mail.com to serve as your primary account. You can then import your email addresses from other services to your mail.com webmail account; at which point the Mail Collector automatically retrieves these emails and forwards them to your mail.com mailbox.
The mail.com Mail Collector works in a similar manner as Outlook or Thunderbird: emails are accessed via POP3. Your existing email history will all be retrieved after the Mail Collector has been set up; afterward, the Mail Collector will only retrieve the new emails that you receive. The emails are accessed with SSL encryption and then checked for spam. In addition, you can define rules for how the collected emails are sorted.
You have the following options when using the Mail Collector to manage multiple email accounts:
- Delete emails from the other mailbox after they are retrieved by your mail.com mailbox
- Save retrieved emails in a separate folder (otherwise they will appear in the inbox)
- Use the Mail Collector email address when replying to/forwarding an email (otherwise the default address will be used)
- If you have configured a Mail Collector, you can also use the external email address as the sender address in an email
Configuring the Mail Collector
Once you set up multiple email accounts to be forwarded to your mail.com account, you can edit the settings and configurations at any time. When you are logged into your mail.com account, simply go to the Mail Collector tool and to the email address that you would like to change. Just click on the wrench tool icon to open up editing options to make and save the relevant changes. Alternatively, you can also completely delete the email addresses from the Mail Collector by clicking the delete icon.
You can also configure sending options for your multiple email accounts individually or as a collective; this includes “priority”, “confidential”, “attach vcard”, “read receipt requests”, and an autoresponder for when you are going on holidays or are out of the office. To set an auto-response message across your multiple accounts, enter your email settings, click on “autoresponder”, and then move your mouse over the appropriate email addresses and click the wrench tool icon. Write your auto-response message and set a time period for the message and click save. If for whatever reason you need to deactivate your autoresponder within the allotted time period, simply switch the autoresponder time period to "never" and click “save”.
