Email Parser can run in three different ways:

  • Run Email Parser as a standalone application (default):
    Incoming emails are processed only if you keep the application open. As soon as you close Email Parser email processing will stop and to resume it you need to open Email Parser again.

  • Connect to Email Parser Windows Service:
    Incoming email processing will take place in your computer but in the background. You can close the application and emails will be still processed as usual. The Email Parser Windows service is a separate process that is started when you turn on the computer (as most Windows services). See Running Email Parser as a Windows service for more information.

  • Connect to Email Parser online:
    Automatically process your incoming email 24 hours per day without keeping the computer on. See What is Email Parser Online for more details.

You can change the running mode at any time just choosing other running mode and clicking “Apply changes”. As the settings (sources, parsers and actions) are saved per running mode, Email Parser will ask you if you want to copy the current items to the new running mode:
