Get Single E-mail

This activity causes logging in to the indicated mail account on the server and downloads an e-mail message from the e-mail box (POP3/IMAP server). One cannot point to a specific folder in the mailbox - Wizlink® sees the inbox as an undivided whole. To receive another message one should delete the previous one (put a tick in the Delete source message box on the activity).
