You can now see a preview of your email inbox on your Protopage. The contents will automatically update every 5 minutes, unless you press the ‘check now’ button to force an immediate update.
This widget is compatible with Gmail, POP3 and IMAP mail providers. Unfortunately, Hotmail, Yahoo mail and other web-only email providers do not allow access unless you have a premium account with them – if you have such an account please follow their instructions for POP3 access and enter those details into the widget.
We have tested this widget with a number of email providers – please do write in if you have any particular troubles with your own email provider.
Protopage will send your email password only once to our email indexing server – it does this only when you first register your inbox with Protopage. From then on – your email inbox is referenced by a special ID that is only valid if you are logged in to your Protopage. This prevents your password from being sent every time you load your Protopage, and as such protects you from someone using network security tools to see your password at a later date.
