IMAP Sync Plugin

The IMAP Sync plugin has an extended set of tools we will be describing in detail below.

NOTE: This plugin is only available for the Professional and Enterprise editions of Feng Office. If you do not see any of the described options available in your account, please contact your Feng Office representative.

Besides from the basic IMAP sync features, this plugin adds the following functionality:

  • New dimension - “Accounts and Folders”: allows the synchronization, creation, edition and deletion of IMAP folders in Feng Office
  • Updated archive function in email (can now view archived email directly from the toolbar)
  • Improved handling of account renaming

The above process will also be reflected the other way round, meaning that when you add a new folder in your e-mail client it will automatically be synced to your Feng Office account.

This two-way sync process is also reflected with:

  • Folders renaming
  • Folders deletion
  • E-mails classification (labeling) into the different folders (for more information on how to classify an e-mail in Feng Office, please refer to this article.
