Can I POP backed up email from your backup email servers?
Posted by Darren Radsmith on 20 September 2005 01:17 AM

Unfortunately, this is not possible with DNS Made Easy's backup email service.

In order for email to be POP'ed from a email server, they must be delivered. Delivering the email message goes beyond the functionality of a backup email server which is not an MTA.

In order to have backup email servers set up which could have messages POP'ed off, this would require multiple servers setup with the same configuration (valid users, quota, etc..) so they would both "deliver" the email messages. Then you would need to have one email server "POP" the messages off of one server. This server functionality is not supported by all email server software though so you would need to contact your email server vendor first to check for support.
