Eclarsys PopGrabber

Eclarsys PopGrabber - POP3 Connector replacement for Exchange and SMTP Servers

Collects Emails from one server via POP3 and delivers them to another server via SMTP.

A POP3 Grabber (or POP3 connector) is normally used by small to medium companies that do not have a dedicated Email server on the Internet and rely on their Internet Service Provider's server for the reception of the emails.

Eclarsys PopGrabber is an excellent replacement for the POP3 connector included with the Small Business version of Microsoft Exchange, and also works with any other standard SMTP server.

    Works using the standard POP3 and SMTP protocols supported by virtually all email servers.

    As soon as an email is received it is immediately forwarded.

    No emails are deleted from the POP3 Server until they are successfully delivered to the destination server

Limitations of PopGrabber Free/Standard

The following features are NOT supported by PopGrabber Free/Standard (but they ARE supported by the Professional Version):

  • Catch-all Mailboxes (each POP3 mailbox is forwarded to only one email address)
  • SSL Connections (you can use Bransoft's ClamMail GNU POP3 Proxy as a workaround, and you get an Antivirus scanner for free!!).
  • SMTP Authentication
  • The Free Version is limited to 3 POP3 accounts

Antivirus Scanning

If you need a free Antivirus solution for your POP3 connector, we recommend using the ClamAV based ClamMail. ClamMail functions as a POP3 proxy and allows you to filter infected emails before forwarding them to your SMTP server. As an extra bonus, you get SSL connection support for products which do not support it like Eclarsys PopGrabber Free and Eclarsys PopGrabber Standard.

We have prepared a step-by-step guide to set up ClamMail with Eclarsys PopGrabber.

Important! Be sure to configure ClamMail on a different port if you already have a POP3 Service running on Port 110.
