Multi Email Notifier is a software which monitor any number of your Email accounts. It will notify you when a new email arrives in any of these accounts.
Multi Email Notifier does not make any change to your emails or any other data at mail server (gmail.com, hotmail.com etc.). For your convenience Multi Email Notifier keeps copy of latest 15 emails of your account, henceforth referred as local copy. Making any changes to local copies does not have any effect on your emails at mail server. When you make any change, like read an email, delete an email etc., to latest 10 emails on mail server then these changes are automatically reflected on the local copies, next time Multi EMail Notfier updates.
When you make any change, like read an email, delete an email etc., to latest 10 emails on mail server then these changes are automatically reflected on the local copies, next time Multi EMail Notfier updates.
For POP3 accounts it is a little different. There is no way to know through the mail server whether an email is read or unread. When a POP3 account is updated for the first time then Multi EMail Notfier downloads 10 latest emails and assume them as unread even if they are read on mail server. After this first update, you will be correctly notified about new emails. Unlike other email accounts, for POP3, you have to manually mark unread emails as read in the software.
Our primary objective while making this software was to provide absolute security to the data stored or displayed by the software.Data security has become major concern these days, specially if it is exchanged over the internet. Keeping this in mind we have taken all the measures to secure your data.
The software connects to mail server and only after proper authentication it goes ahead. The communication between the software and mail servers is done using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) which makes the data transfer encrypted and secure. This is the same protocol used by web browsers like chrome, firefox etc to login.
All data like account login, name, urls etc. are stored in encrypted format, not only this, the email headers downloaded from mail servers are also encrypted. The login information is loaded to software memory in encrypted format only and is sent only to mail servers after proper authentication.
The algorithm used to encrypt the data is Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit. This is the same algorithm used by U.S government to protect classified documents.
Due to the nature of internet connection many time error occur while checking for emails. Unless these errors happen repeatedly there is nothing to worry about. When an error occur while checking email then “Error Log” button in the toolbar becomes enabled. Clicking that button shows the error log.
If you have error about “Connection refused” or “Server denied” be sure to have the POP3 / IMAP enabled in your email settings.
If an error keeps happening we also suggest you to manually login to the email account and delete last email that is causing the problem.
