Order Imports Tab
Note: Amazon orders are now imported from the Order Fulfillment Report, starting with version 2.0. E-mail option has been eliminated. Half.com sellers have an option of importing orders from e-mails, from FTP account (Power sellers only), or from eBay File Exchange. eBay orders are being processed from PayPal e-mails, or from eBay File Exchange.
File Exchange requires subscription at least for one of the other eBay services. The File Exchange subscription itself is free!
window below is where you set up and turn on/off importing from your seller
accounts, respectively for each one of them, using the checkboxes. The
field labels for the login parameters are self-explanatory. Please note
that the login parameters in this window are not your email account parameters,
but the seller login parameters, which are required for
the program to communicate with Amazon, Half.com (only for Power Sellers)
or eBay. The program must communicate with them in order to properly download
and upload files which contain orders and modify data.
In the "Account 1 e-mail address" field you need to enter the email address to which you receive your notification emails. After you have done so, just press the ENTER button, and the program will try to autodetect your username, your incoming and outgoing server, and fill in the appropriate fields. If it succeeds, you just need to add your password. If the program fails to autodetect your mail servers, you will need to enter all the login parameters manually. Lookup your mail client (probably Outlook Express or MS Outlook?) email account to see how you set up the mail servers there.
If you want to use Mail Extractor for two email accounst, click on the "2" button, and repeat the same procedure, and the program will store your data respectively. So when you want to download emails from any of these two email accounts, you will need to press the appropriate button (1 or 2) to set an account active before Getting Orders.
Since Mail Extractor downloads emails directly from your mail server, users who use an email client program (Outlook Express, MS Outlook, Eudora, or any) must configure the client to leave emails on server after it downloads them! Otherwise emails will be deleted by your email client, and Mail Extractor will be unable to download them from your server.
Configure your mail client (Outlook Express, Eudora....)
E-mails are received and stored on the mail server. E-mail clients like Outlook, Eudora and Mail Extractor are used to retrieve (download) e-mails. They can also instruct mail server to mark messages as read or delete them from the server completely. It is important to synchronize e-mail clients, so they can all download the mail from the mail server.
most mail clients there is an option "Leave
a copy of messages on server",
or something similar. This option, leaves your emails on the mail server
after being read, i.e. it does not delete them. However, you will surely
need to delete e-mails after being read by both programs, your email client,
and Mail Extractor. Both the programs can do it. If you set Mail Extractor
to delete your e-mails (not recommended), make sure that you first download
them in your email client (just to have your safe copy, as an archive),
because Mail Extractor e-mail deletion is not reversible, it works immediately,
during download. However, if you want your standard mail client to do
it (recommended), then it offers additional options on when should it
delete the read e-mails.
Don't download already downloaded messages
My outgoing server requires authentication
Hotmail users must install an additional program in order
to use Mail Extractor, because Hotmail does not allow third-party programs
to read their emails. Fortunately, these programs can mediate in this
and enable reading Hotmail e-mails in any mail client, as well as in Mail
