Additional downloads - POPcon PRO utilities

POPconTrigger - Trigger a mail retrieval cycle from the command line

You can use POPconTrigger to start a mail retrieval cycle from the command line or another software capable of starting an .exe file. The command line format is:

POPcontrigger SERVER

Instead of  "SERVER" you need to enter the name of the server POPcon PRO is running on. This parameter is only needed if POPcon PRO is running on a different computer than POPconTrigger.

POPconView - POPcon PROAdmin but without the ability to change the POPcon PRO configuration

You can install POPconView on individual user's workstations to allow the users to trigger a POPcon PRO mail retrieval cycle manually and to monitor the operation of POPcon PRO without giving the user the ability to change the POPcon PRO configuration. New: Now you can select a fixed server that this utility talks to by adding the server name or IP in the command line. "POPconView.exe MYSERVER" or "POPconView.exe" connects POPconView directly to the server - very handy in cases where firewalls block the POPconView/POPcon service discovery protocol.

popcon_addaccount.exe - command-line utility to add a POP3 or IMAP account to the POPcon configuration.

popcon_addaccount "pop.mydomain.com" "myuser" "mysecretpassword" 0 "" 110 30 "postmaster@mydomain.com" 0 0 "display name"

Will add one account to POPcon's configuration that downloads from pop.mydomain.com, user myuser with password mysecretpassword. This account will delete emails after download without leaving them on the server any longer. The mail will be distributed according to the header information ("catchall style mailbox"). The connection will be made on POP3 standard port 110 with a timeout of 30 seconds. If the recipient does not exist in your Exchange Server, the mail will be rerouted to postmaster@mydomain.com. The connection will not use SSL and it is not an IMAP but a POP3 server that the mail is downloaded from.

usage: popcon_changepw pop/imap-server-name username new-password
