    Default Alpha 5 V10.5 Built-in email client

    I searched somewhat for an answer to my question but didn't really see a question or answer that addressed this. Doesn't mean it doesn't exist, I guess.

    Can A5V10.5 handle IMAP? It sends mail using SMTP settings. However, when I try to receive existing messages into the A5 email client (including the bcc to myself) I get a timeout error (after 15 seconds it appears) I have some 600 emails in my Outlook inbox, of which, all are read and some I want to save/store in a client specific folder OR into a specific email table attached to my primary table via the set structure.

    Bob, did you try searching for IMAP in the search box above? The first hit answers your question.

    No, I searched for Built-in mail server threads. Thanks for finding that.

    I suppose IMAP would have been more logical.

    Now I guess I need to figure out how to deal with this. I suppose I can create a new POP account and forward emails to it then receive them and place where I want.

    If anyone has other suggestions, they are appreciated in advance.

    Thanks

    Alpha Five only supports POP for receiving emails. It will not work with IMAP.
