Loading messages

This section on the New Service form is used to set up retrieval of messages from the mailbox.
If the message contains a tag of an existing request in the subject line, it will be automatically loaded into its log. Based on messages without a request tag, a new request is created.

    • Exchange Server - enter the name of the Exchange server, e.g.:
      • Authentication
        • OAuth 2.0 (Exchange Online) - First, register the Alvao Service application in your Azure Active Directory and set permissions for the full_access_as_app. We also recommend limiting permissions so that can only access the listed mailboxes.

            If you want to retrieve messages from another mailbox, such as a shared mailbox in Microsoft 365, put a backslash at the end followed by the email address of that mailbox. For example, the username will retrieve messages from the mailbox and log into that mailbox as the user.
          • Password - enter the password to log in.
            The password for accessing the mailbox is stored in the database in unencrypted form.
      The interface is supported by Exchange Server 2016 (or later) and Office 365.
    • IMAP Server - enter the network name of the IMAP server.
      • IMAP Port - enter the TCP/IP port for communication with the IMAP server.
