The component can be configured to process messages from several IMAP accounts. Each account has associated e-mail classes. An e-mail class specifies the criteria according to which email messages will be searched for in the account. The exact criteria are defined in the e-Mail Class Configuration dialog box. You can see the order of accounts and their e-mail classes in the Tree View. Accounts are represented as first level elements and classes as their children nodes.
One account can have several associated e-mail classes. For example, you can add two or more classes that will search for messages from different senders and pass them into different workflows.
|Add||Click this button to add a new account or e-mail class to a selected one in the Tree View.|
|Remove||Click this button to delete a selected account or e-mail class.|
|Edit||Click this button to edit a selected account or e-mail class. Clicking this button
displays a menu on which you can click
one of the following:
|Up, Down||Use these buttons to move a selected element in the Tree View up or down.|
|Collapse all, Expand all, Duplicate||These buttons allow you to collapse or expand the tree of accounts and to duplicate a selected item.|
|Accounts processing order||The processing of accounts starts with the first account and goes down through the
list of all account until it reaches
the end, in which case the component continues checking accounts again from the top,
or until the component detects an account
which has a message that satisfies a criterion of this account.
Checking an account consists of checking the list of associated e-mail classes in a descending order until some class matches a new message that meets class criteria.
|Top to bottom||Specifies that every iteration of checking emails starts with the first account in the list.|
|Cyclic||Specifies that accounts are checked in sequence.|
|Home Directory||Specifies the directory where the component temporarily stores its working files.|
|Automatically create at run-time||Select this check box to have the component create the folder specified by Home Directory if it does not already exist. If you do not select this check box, the application will prompt to create the folder when you click OK to close the dialog box.|
