MailStation multiple accounts

Unread post by Rhapsody » Wed Sep 23, 2015 8:25 am

Recently I managed to install MailStation and configure a single pop account.
Now I'd like to add another account. But I want to keep these accounts separated.

How can I achieve this? As far as I know, Roundcube does now support multiple accounts.

You can have a zillion accounts if you want, but you will need to setup the account on DS first of course.
Some people spent a lot of time writing the Help files, use it!
Do not expect serious answers if it can be found by searching for it yourself.

Ah, I understand. It works with Synology accounts.

Thanks!

Hello, I would like to setup my Synology to basically be like an email client which pull emails from multiple accounts at once (Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, etc...). This way I can access all my web based emails from one place, without having to log into each account/site or setup all these accounts in Thunderbird.

Is this possible with Synology and how?

Please read the forums, that has been asked several times and the answer is there. And please do NOT hijack someone else's thread...

Well excuse Mr. Not Nice Person, Wow!

1) I did try to research my answer and after about 30 minutes I found this thread which seems to be exactly what I was looking for. I have no idea how I hijacked this.
2) I apologize if my search skills or decision making skills are so low like a one celled organism compared to your awesome and powerful skills.
3) If you are that good and smart, please guide me to the correct thread or instructions, thank you for contributing useful information to this thread.
4) Nobody like a troll.
5) This is my first first time posting on the Synology community and I am shocked at the lack of friendlessness on here. Not very welcoming.

Excuse me? YOU are new and YOU start like this?
Other that come for help have at least the decency to SEARCH for themselves and not demand that other do that for them and point them to it! That is just plain LAZY!

As I stated, I did research and configured my Synology thus came to a stand still. I simply asked if this was possible. Once again, I'm sorry I'm not as good as you.

The best keyword to use the forum search is "pop3" or "fetchmail".

Since even Harry helps lazy people, I will make an exception:

But you did not just ask if it was possible, you also asked HOW! Sorry but there are so many 'members' coming to ask something so simple over and over again and then you never get any feedback anymore, VERY frustrating!

Calling people lazy over something that comes extremely easy for you is also not the correct approach to a person on a forum or life in general. If it frustrates you that much then I suggest you retire from this forum or talk to a therapist.

It's very rude and literally an attack to call someone names right out of the gate.

However, I do agree with you that repeating myself over and over again is very annoying, but only when it's the same person repeating the same question. Even then I try not to show my extreme frustration nor do I roll my eyes at that person. With that said, if multiple new people are repeating the same first offense, perhaps then the "system" needs to be reevaluated and changes be made to make it easier for these people you consider are lazy; when if the person did do his or her research for half an hour beforehand. Just because said person is not as highly skilled as you does not mean they are lazy.

I will have to thank Harry because Fetchmail I believe is the answer I was looking for. I already googled it and will be doing my due diligence before asking further questions.

One last note: The reason why I asked such a short and straightforward answer on here is because in the Package Center on my Synology it states "retrieve all your external mail" in the description for Mail Station. I assumed it was simply going to be a web app for me to log into and configure all my IMAP accounts, I could not find any Synology documentation on proper use. I did not realize I would have to change server settings via command prompt. Once again, if I am wrong or missed something big in my research, I apologize.

Lazy is when the answer is in the documentation and you did not take time to do a minimum of study. You would have found the Fetchmail is you read it! That has nothing to do with smarter or anything like that, everyone has to start somewhere, but not on someone elses time...

Where did you get that from? You dont have to. Fetching mails from external pop3 account is included in Mail Station.
