Reading via POP3 allows email clients to read email.

Alternatively, you can use a per private address SMTP password. The per private address SMTP password can be set through using the Dashboard -> Manage Email Addresses -> Select the POP/SMTP button next to the email address -> Select Set New Password
Email Client Configuration
Configure your email client (Gmail, Apple mail, Thunberbird, Outlook, iPhone, etc) using these POP3 settings:
|Hostname / Server||poppy.mailsac.com|
|Email Address||Private email address|
|Username||Private email address|
|Password||API Key or SMTP Key|
|Auth Settings||Password / allow plain / insecure|
To configure a mail client for sending see the Sending Mail via SMTP Section.
Viewing Email Attachments¶
Public email addresses disallow downloading attachments - you must download the entire message file, or fetch attachments programmatically using the API.
Attachments cannot be hosted publicly for download because attachments often contain viruses and spam.
