The IMAP module can be configured using the configuration page within the Object Tree of the Management Console. The parameters for host and port can be taken from the manual of the mail provider. The username and password are the login data for the e-mail account.


Since October 2022 a connection to Microsoft 365 (outlook.office365.com) isn't supported. This is because of the only use of OAuth2 authentification supported by Microsoft.

To display the e-mails in the visualization, the interval must be set. It determines the cyclic request of the inbox. Only the subject line is requested. The complete e-mail will only be loaded when requested by the visualization.

On the variable "Last Message" can be determined if and when new mails arrive. If no e-mails are in the mailbox, the variable has the value 0. The "Unread Messages" variable returns the number of unread messages.
