POP3 is a protocol for receiving mail with programs like Pegasus mail (freeware), Eudora, or MS Outlook Express (part of Windows). So if for some reason you cannot or do not wish to use our own WinCOM or MacCom, you may want to use these programs instead.
You need to supply the following information to your mail program:
POP3 server name: mail.pamho.net SMTP server name: mail.pamho.net
(You must use authenticated SMTP, so in Outlook switch on
"My server requires authentication")
SMTP server port: 587 (instead of 25) SSL: Off Account name: May be any of the following:
- your user number
- your login name (= user name without the stuff in parentheses)
- your e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Password: your PAMHO password
In Outlook Express, you add an account in Tools > Accounts. Click Add > Mail... Write your name there, next your PAMHO e−mail address, and then the information as listed above.
- If you only want to retrieve mail addressed to you personally ("letters") and no conference mail, append an exclamation mark (!) to the account name.
- You may also append following options in square brackets to the account name:
no conference texts
do not attach any files
do not attach files larger than 250KB
no mails that have attached files The options can also be combined. For example:
no conference texts and no attached files
- Members of the mail node CIS need to write
cis:in front of their user name or number (without any spaces), or write the e-mail address (email@example.com).
