The Email action is a powerful solution for managing and streamlining the retrieval of inbound e-mail. It encompasses a variety of activities that can detect e-mail contents and automatically download specific messages from multiple servers and/or accounts as a result. Additionally, it can save attachments into selected folders and remove unnecessary messages directly from the server. The Email action supports all major protocols including POP3, IMAP, WEBDAV (Exchange 2003) and EWS (Exchange 2007/2010). Its advanced security features provide secure transport of data over SMTP, IMAP and POP3 protocols via Explicit and Implicit Transport Layer Security (TLS) and/or Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).

Combined with the Exchange action, AutoMate presents an effective email attendant that allows you to automate common to complex email operations and simultaneously manage several e-mail accounts from as many mail servers as required. For instance, the Get message along with the Send message activity can be used as an auto-responder; the ability to send different auto-responses based on the content of the incoming email.
