    hello,

    I appreciate email clients may vary (I use Mozilla THunderbird) but is it possible to pop a certain folder in a cpanel email account? I thought the protocol might be:

    alias@domain.com/folder

    but I don't seem to be achieving it. The situation may be being complicated by my associating avast! virus scanning with Thunderbird on my pc. I say that because the email account's pop server in Thunderbird is changed from mail.domain.com to 127.0.0.1 and the username becomes:

    alias@domain.com#mail.domain.com

    thanks for any help here,
    lee.

    Go on, have a guess
    There's no need at all to (1) repost the exact same message or (2) bump it - if someone is going to help, they will, you just have to be patient.

    To answer your question - No. The POP3 protocol does not work that way and has no understanding at all of folders. If you want to do that, then you need to look into using IMAP access to the email account.

    Thanks,

    that's exactly what I needed to know. I'll either drop my idea(s) or look into the imap principles, which are currently a mystery to me. I have noticed however that my client Thunderbird does support it.
