Virtual Contact Center supports the POP3/POP3 SSL and IMAP/IMAP SSL email protocols.
The only inbound network access required by the Virtual Contact Center are the ports used to retrieve email from your organization’s email server. If your network uses only a third-party email host such as AOL, Yahoo, or Gmail, you do not need to open firewall ports to support email access.
When retrieving email from your existing email server, Virtual Contact Center submits the username and password for a mailbox.
|Email Protocol||Default Email Port Access Requirements|
If your network uses non-default email ports, in the Configuration Manager, use the Properties tab of the Email Channels page to specify the non-default port numbers.
Alternatively, you can set your firewall to allow all traffic from the IP that Virtual Contact Center uses to contact clients.
The following are the Source IPs required to pull emails from customers' mail systems.
