POP3 adapter BizTalk RRS feed

  • Question

  • My POP3 adapter is deleting all the emails from the Mail box, what i need is it should only read the unread ones. And it must not delete any mail. How can this be achieved in BizTalk or at the POP3 server ??

  • There are a few options you can try.

    1. Have your mail server forward copies of the emails to the email box that BizTalk consume it from.  This way you still retain copies of the emails on the server.
    2. Use a third party adapter like nSoftware's that has that ability in it's DeleteMode
    3. Write your own POP3 adapter that has that functionality

    For example, here's how to set it in GMail:
