ContentStore Mail Server (IMAP)

You can give end users access to backed up or archived messages on mobile devices that support an IMAP client. As the administrator, you must install and set up the ContentStore Mail Server (IMAP), which is based on IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol). End users set up an IMAP client on their devices to view the archived messages.

The messages are cached locally on the end user's device (that is, on the IMAP client). New messages are pushed to the device as they are backed up or archived and content indexed.

You can provide access to either mailbox messages or journaled messages; not both. By default, you provide access to mailbox messages. If you want to provide access to journaled messages, you must configure the ContentStore Mail Server (IMAP) accordingly.

Before You Begin

  • Before you set up the ContentStore Mail Server (IMAP):
  • Messages must be content indexed.
  • Install the SSL certificate on the ContentStore Mail Server (IMAP). Use a digital certificate signed by the Certificate Authority (CA), and not a self-signed certificate. Make sure that the SSL port 143 or 993 is open. Port 993 is available only after the SSL certificate is installed.

Important: Messages cannot be deleted or moved on the server regardless of what the IMAP clients allow.
