Get Single E-mail

This activity causes logging in to the indicated mail account on the server and downloads an e-mail message from the e-mail box (POP3/IMAP server). One cannot point to a specific folder in the mailbox - Wizlink sees the inbox as an undivided whole. To receive another message one should delete the previous one (put a tick in the Delete source message box on the activity).

NOTE: we recommend using IMAP protocol because of some limitations on POP3 protocol (Wizlink may ends in fail when the checkbox Delete Source Message is on and you use Microsoft - because POP3 protocol actually deletes mail from server only after clean disconnection, so Wizlink has to disconnect and reconnect, and Microsoft forbides connecting for some time after 20 or so reconnecting action).

NOTE: the activity works properly as long as no other program nor human uses the same mailbox as Wizlink.
