This tab is used to manage email accounts. An account can be in three states:
- Active – this account is used.
- Inactive – using of this account is disabled.
- Primary – a primary email address; that is the address from which you write emails to the others. Note: only an active account can be set as a primary one, it’s done by the “Set as primary” command.
This tab also has the following buttons:
- Retrieve mails – retrieves mails from the selected account. If inactive account is selected an error is shown.
- New account – creates a new account.
- Edit – opens an edit form for the selected account.
- Delete – deletes a selected account.
- Set as primary – sets the given account as a primary.
- Clear DB – deletes all accounts!
You can also create an alias/name to your email address so the recipients will see your name and email address as well.
To create the alias, edit or create an email account (go to the Accounts tab, select Create or Edit command) write the email address in this format: yourname < firstname.lastname@example.org >.
An example, the normal format: email@example.com, will be changed into: mujmail team <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Its shortcut is “*” + “4”.
Editing an account:
Selected account can be edited by choosing Edit command in Accounts tab. The following properties of the given account can be edited:
