Email Forwarding Service
(INPUT) EWS Server Properties

EWS Connection Settings

This property tab is used to configure all EWS - (Microsoft) Exchange Web Services related settings for the connector.


Url: Specify the URL to connect to.

Depending on the configuration of the Exchange environment, you may have to adjust the URL. Typically it is https://<server>/EWS/Exchange.asmx:

Example URL:
User: Specify the Exchange User Account. e.g domain\usernama
Password: Specify the password for the Exchange account.

Server Copy

Leave copy of Message on Server If enabled, the mail will not be removed from the Exchange server after it's been read.
Remove from server after (n) days If enabled, you can specify for how many days the message should be kept on the Exchange server before deleted.
Remove from server after delivered If enabled, the mail will be removed from the Exchange server, once it's been successfully sent on the the smtp server.

Existing Server Mails

Ignore Existing If enabled, any existing messages will be ignored at the next inbox poll. This is useful when you set up a new connector and the Server Inbox contains a large number of old messages that you don’t want to be forwarded.

Alternatively, if a connector has been suspended for a long period of time, and the Server Inbox has received messages that you don’t want to forward when the connector is re-enabled.

This option is automatically disabled once the mail server has been successfully polled once.
Rescan If enabled, then poprep will rescan the inbox for messages. This will cause poprep to consider all emails in the inbox to be new, and they will be resent.

This may be useful if you initially created the connector, configuring it to ignore any existing emails, and you later decide that you want all existing emails to be delivered as well.

Any message currently in the queue - waiting to be forwarded will remain, they will not be read again from the Inbox.

This option is automatically disabled once the mail server has been successfully polled once.

NOTE1: Any emails that have been sent already will be re-sent if this option is selected.

NOTE2: Enabeling this option, will auso cause poprep to forget the Message-Id's of all previosuly seen messages.
(See "Filter Duplicate MessageId")

Filter Messages

Filter Duplicate MessageId If enabled, the connector will filter out any duplicate emails. It uses the Message-Id field in the message to determine if the message has been seen already. Any new message with the same Message-Id id as a previous received email will not be received. POPREP will remember all message ID’s for 7 days after it's been removed from the Inbox of the Exchange Server.

This is especially useful if a message is moved from the Inbox to a different folder, and then moved back to the Inbox. This wil lresult in Exchange reporting this as a new message whils it's actually the same message that has reappeared. By configuring poprep to look at the internet Message-Id - it will detect that this is actually the same message preventin it to be redelivered.

If you receive messages from a system that incorrectly re-uses the same Message-Id for different messages - then enabeling this feature will prevent these mesages from being forwarded. In that situation, you you need them to be forwarded you must disable this option. Even when disabled, POPREP will continue to track the message ID's so if you enable this feature at a later date, it will any duplicate items from that point.
