Sharing SMTP/POP addresses

The database should have its own email account for SQL Remote messages, separate from personal email messages intended for reading. This is because many email readers will collect email in the following manner:

  1. Connect to the POP Host and download all messages.
  2. Delete all messages from POP Host
  3. Disconnect from POP Host.
  4. Read mail from the local file or from memory

This causes a problem, as the email program downloads and deletes all of the SQL Remote email messages as well as personal messages. If you are certain that your email program will not delete unread messages from the POP Host then you may share an email address with the database as long as you take care not to delete or alter the database messages.

These messages are easy to recognize, as they are filled with lines of seemingly random text.
