After having entered the access credentials, set up the main folders for incoming emails, sent emails, drafts, bin and spam.
The user can change the layout at any time by accessing Folders from the Messages module


Once the configuration, of one or more accounts is ended, you can find in the Message module the list of the folders (standard and special) divided for each account or in a unified version.
This allows the user to display, for example, all the incoming emails from different addresses in one single folder.

Special folders

There are two special folders in the folders list:

  • Shared: contains emails that other users have shared with you via a conversation (see below);
  • Imported: contains all the Messages that are not included in any of the user's IMAP accounts for various reasons, but are linked to a vtenext record;
  • Flagged: contains emails marked
  • Scheduled: contains all the scheduled messages that have to be sent, according to the chosen time and date.
