POP Support

Instead of providing a custom REST api for Imitate Email we provide POP access to your accounts so that you can programmatically access your test emails or use a 3rd party email client, like Thunderbird or Outlook.

When coupled with Web Sockets this enables integration testing scenarios for your software development.

Setting up your POP connection

We provide POP over SSL for encryption. Use host pop.imitate.email and then port 995 or SSL.

Your username and password are the same as the username and password of your mailbox (your email address/password won't work). Go to Settings → My Mailbox.

Some email clients expect the username to be an email address. You can add @anythingyouwant.com to the end of your username when this is the case and it will work.

If you're on a team plan and using projects you will need to use the credentials for those mailboxes to access them over POP.
