Other IMAP

Other IMAP Request Parameters

Note:
When syncing email data from a mailbox on IMAP, only the IMAP/All Mail folder and its contents will be synced. This ensure that all mail (except the ones moved to the Trash or Spam folders) from the account are synced without any duplicates.

When submitting requests to upload email data, the Request type to be selected must have Other IMAP as a source or destination. 

Other IMAP as the source

The parameters to be used when Other IMAP is the source are as follows:

FIELD NAME DESCRIPTION SAMPLE VALUE
Source user id User id on source domain whose data needs to be imported
(Note: The id should not contain the domain name.)
"john"
Source Domain Source domain on your server "baya.com"
Source user password Password of the user on the source domain
Note: Passwords cannot contain special characters mentioned in the list given here. Update the password before submitting the request.
Source server IP address or host name of the source domain "baya.mithiskyconnect.com"
Source Server Port

Port on the source server for connection

The default port used for connection is 143 which can be changed if required.

"143"

Other IMAP as the destination

The parameters to be used when Other IMAP is the destination are as follows:

FIELD NAME DESCRIPTION SAMPLE VALUE
Destination user id The user id on the other IMAP server.
(Note: The id should not contain the domain name.)

DO NOT use the any reserved folder names on the other IMAP  server. Example: Drafts, Trash, Spam, Chat, Quarantine, Archive

"Data17012018"

Note: When submitting two or more requests to import data to the same destination mailbox, it is recommended to choose a different destination folder for each request. 
The reports generated at the end of a request enlist all the mail available in the folder imported using previous requests.

CSV format for bulk IMAP request creation

Create a CSV file with a list of all the users and other details required to upload data. First row of the CSV file should contain field names and from second row provide the list of users and their details.
