Redirect the Mail Connector to a Test Mailbox

The imported Mail Connector jobs use your production mailbox as the source of incoming messages. We recommend that you use a test mailbox so that you can test the Mail Connector while you configure your pilot Alloy Navigator 8. To test the Mail Connector jobs, you need to temporarily redirect the m to that test mailbox.

You will point them back later. For details, see Optional: Redirect Your Mail Connector to the Support Mailbox.

To redirect a Mail Connector job:

  1. In the Alloy Navigator 8 Settings, go to E-mail Processing > Mail Connector and double-click the job.
  2. Modify the Mail Server settings so that the Mail Connector now process messages from your test mailbox.
  3. Click OK.

    INFO: For details, see Administration Guide: Configuring Mail Connector Settings.

Now you can force the job to run and check its results. For details, see Administration Guide: Checking Results of the Mail Connector Job.

To test how the job runs automatically, enable it. For details, see Administration Guide: Disabling or Enabling Mail Connector Jobs.
