1. Basic information
1.1. Description of the control
Email a simple e-mail client for inbox that displays (but does not download or store to the database) incoming e-mail messages from a POP3 or IMAP mail server.
1.2. Create a new control
A new email can be created as follows from the preview page using the toolbar with controls:
- First, clicking on the view page determines the position in which the new email should be placed. This will highlight the selected position with a gray horizontal line. Then just click on “E-Mail” in the toolbar of the view page, fill in the attributes of the new control in the newly opened dialog, and then save. This will insert a new email at a pre-selected location on the view page.
- If the desired position is not determined before entering a new email, the new email will be inserted at the end of the view page.
1.3. Edit or delete a control
- For each existing control, a pencil icon appears to the left of the control page to change or delete the control's settings.
- Individual controls can be moved vertically on the view page using the Drag&Drop method. Moving consists of grabbing the control, preferably behind its name, and then dragging it to the desired location on the view page.
- For security reasons, it is important to have the function of moving controls enabled using the “Drag&Drop” check box located above the toolbar with controls. This field is unchecked each time you log in to the application.
