You can use the Email connector from the CData Sync application to capture data from Email and move it to any supported destination. To do so, you need to add the connector, authenticate to the connector, and complete your connection.

Establish a Connection

To allow Sync to use data from Email, you first must establish a connection to Email. Follow these steps to connect Email to your Sync account:

  1. Open the Connections page of the Sync dashboard.

  2. Click Add Connection to open the Select Connectors page.

  3. Click the Sources tab and locate the Email row.

  4. Click the Configure Connection icon at the end of that row. If you do not see the Configure Connection icon, you need to add the connector according to the instructions in Connections.

  5. Enter connection settings on the Settings tab:

    • Connection Name - Enter a connection name of your choice.

    • User - Enter the username that you use to authenticate to your email account.

    • Password - Enter the password that you use to authenticate to email account.

    • Server - Enter the server address for your email account.

    • Protocol - Select the protocol your email account uses. The default protocol is IMAP.

    • Port - Enter the port number for your email account.

    • SSL Mode - Select the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) mode that you want to use. The default value is NONE.

  6. Click Create & Test to create the connection.

  7. Define advanced connection settings on the Advanced tab. (In most cases, though, you should not need these settings.)
