1 Overview

BEmail, short for "bxp Email", are account details for interacting with email accounts.


A BEMail account has the details to interact with an email account in the way Microsoft Outlook does, or how you would interact with your GMail account.. When a BEMail account is set up, various parts of bxp can then be allowed into that mailbox to do work with the emails there within.


2 How the accounts are used

bxp has the ability to get emails from an email account. This is called "Inbound to bxp", as bxp will log into this email box to retrieve emails.


bxp also has the ability to send emails out through a particular email server. This is called "Outbound from bxp"


bxp also has it's own email servers which can pretend to be any email account. Where possible when sending emails out bxp will use it's own engine.


3 Account Creation

To create an account Main Menu > System Access Management > System Management > BEMail Account - Add >

These settings allow bxp to log into the specified email account and read the emails from this account and server.
