        This article provides instructions on setting up a Fetch Mail account in   Horde, so that you can retrieve messages from an existing e-mail   account that you have outside of your domain. 
     REQUIREMENTS:   

       
  • An existing Linux hosting account. 


       
  • An existing e-mail box. If you do not yet have an e-mail box set up, you can create one in your control panel. 





       
  • Log in to Webmail by entering the following URL in your browser (substituting "yourdomain.com" with your actual domain name): "https://yourdomain.com:2096" 

  •    
  • On the Horde navigation menu, expand Options and then click Mail.
       

  •    
  • Under the Message Options section, click on Fetch Mail.
       

  •    
  • On the Fetch Mail page, click on the first item, Edit your preferences for accessing other mail accounts.
       

  •    
  • On the next page (under Other Mail Accounts), click on the Create New Account option. 

  •    
  • From the Mail server type to connect to: drop-down box, select IMAP/POP3 Mail Servers

  •    
  • On the Other Mail Accounts page, specify the settings, as follows:
       

            
    • Account's name:  Other Account, or any other name that you would like to use to distinguish the account from other accounts. 

    •       
    • Protocol:  IMAP (Auto Detect) 

    •       
    • Username: E-mail address for the account that you want to retrieve mail from 

    •       
    • Password: Password for that e-mail account 

    •       
    • Server: The incoming mail server hostname; (e.g., mail.otherdomaindomain.com)

    •       
    • Remote Mailbox: Inbox 

    •       
    • Local Mailbox: Inbox  (bring the fetched mail into the INBOX)

    •    

  •    
  • Select the check box for "Get only new messages?"  (Or for a more permanent setup, select instead "Delete fetched messages from remote server?".  Configure to your preference)

  •    
  • Click the Create button. 

  •    
  • Click Return to Fetch Mail

  •    
  • Click Save Options

  •    
  • On the toolbar (at the top of the page), click on the Fetch Mail option.
       

  •    
  • On the Fetch Mail page, leave the [Other Account] (the one you just configured) check box selected and then click the Fetch Mail button.
     
      If mail retrieval is successful, you will see mail messages for the   account, along with the following message "Fetchmail: Fetched XX   messages from [other account] Account [name of other account]".
