Email folders: Delete mails on server? Specific email folders within an user account? Nuxeo gets read emails?
I have created an email folder in nuxeo DM 5.4.2 running under CENTOS Linux 5.7 with PostgreSQL.
I pointed the folder to our exchange email server and a specific user account within that exchange server.
I am able to read the emails using the POP3 protocol, regardless of the read/unread state of each email. Yeah they show up in nuxeo read or un-read. Also the emails that are transferred to nuxeo are removed from the exchange server.
My questions are:
Where are the changes to the protocol schema referenced in https://jira.nuxeo.com/browse/NXP-3913 and http://hg.nuxeo.org/nuxeo/nuxeo-features/rev/39a675c53ac4.
Are these features part of nuxeo 5.4.3? Or are these features “contributions” from a user that can be added?
Can I select a unique folder within a given email account and perform an email transfer?
Can I select whether to leave the email on the server or not via a boolean field?
Also, I'm curious why I can obtain emails from exchange that are in the read state?
Thanks in advance for any insight.
Ok at least partially answered my own question!
POP3 protocol is brute force. Connect to server, download emails, delete emails from server, disconnect. POP3, as I found out, has no knowledge of read/un-read messages at least on the server side.
So my read/unread question above is answered by the fact POP3 knows nothing of read state of messages on the server side.
IMAP KNOWS about read/unread state and works “as advertised” only transferring unread messages and not deleting anything from the server. Very acceptable for my application.
I would be nice to be able to select a folder within a user account using IMAP.
Any takers on this alternate folder question?
I don't understand your latter question. Could you re-post it more clearly as standalone question on answers ? Thank you
