POP is the most basic email protocol that Email Parser supports for downloading your email. Some advanced options such as processing newer messages first or to ignore older emails before the actual download is done are missing. However, it is a widely used protocol and almost all the email providers support it.

Configuring POP email sources in Email Parser is very similar to setting an email account in a traditional email client. In fact, the required parameters are the same. First, click “Add email source” in the left panel of Email Parser:
