Managing Recipient Settings

Configure POP3 Settings

When you configure POP3 settings, you can choose between MIME and uuencode options, choose a default character set, and select Exchange Rich Text Format.

Settings Description
MIME Encoding

MIME provides a way to describe a message consisting of different parts. By definition, all POP3 clients are MIME-aware. Options include:

  • Displaying text only and replacing graphics and active links with textual representations by selecting Provide message body as plain text.
  • Displaying graphics and links to other documents by selecting Provide message body as HTML.
  • Providing both plain text and HTML when you aren't sure which format the client can read by selecting Both.
Uuencode UNIX to UNIX encoding (uuencode) converts a binary file into printable 7-bit ASCII characters without loss of information.
Default Character Set Exchange supports multilingual messages using Windows code pages instead of Internet character sets. Most languages have a one-to-one correspondence between the character set and code page.
Use Exchange Rich Text Format If enabled, POP3 clients receive messages in Exchange Rich Text Format. Although all POP3 clients receive the information as an attachment, the attachment is opened and displayed as a normal message for POP3 clients that can interpret Exchange Rich Text Format. For POP3 clients that cannot interpret Exchange Rich Text Format, an attachment is displayed.

Use the procedure in this section that includes the MIME or UUEncode option you are going to select. If you want to use Exchange Rich Text Format, you can use either the MIME option of Provide message body as plain text, or the UUEncode option.
