Set up and open mailbox

It is possible to load e-mails from a mailbox into objectiF RPM in order to derive requests from an e-mail, for example. You can read and delete loaded e-mails. It is not possible to reply to e-mails or send new e-mails. Read e-mails are displayed in gray. E-mails that have not yet been read are displayed in bold.

Set up mailbox

Before you can call e-mails in objectiF RPM, you must set up a mailbox for them.

  1. Open a project and switch to the backstage menu.
  1. Under Project/ Mails, click Configure mailbox.
  1. Enter the server address of your mailbox under Address. (e.g. pop3.web.de)
  2. Enter the port of the server address. (e.g. 995)
  3. Under Username enter the e-mail address of your mailbox. (e.g. MaxMustermann@web.de)
  4. Enter the password with which you log in to your mailbox. (e.g. password2018)
  5. Under Attachments, enter a directory in objectiF RPM. If e-mails have attachments, another directory is created in the specified directory and the attachments are stored there.
  6. Then click on Test to check whether the configuration is correct.
