If you have a Gmail address

Automatic Email Manager will open your browser to ask for authorization, that's why you don't need to enter the password.

3. If your email is not know you will have to specify manually

Choose the type of email account you want to use, by default and the best is IMAP4, which is the fastest and robust connection type, all major email providers support this protocol.

5. Define the delay between each check

You can set Automatic Email Manager to check your email box when emails are present in real time (the PUSH method), but this method is not available for every type of account, only for some IMAP4, Gmail, Exchange and Office365.
You can also set it to check every 10 minutes, or at specifid time: for example every morning at 09:00 when you open the shop.
Note: you can use the advanced scheduler to define the days and time ranges you want the account will be checked.

Set interval

6. Set the actions you want to apply for these emails

It is the final step, just choose the groups of actions you want to apply to the emails from this account. You can use same group of actions to multiple accounts, so just click on 'Add a group of Actions', it will list all existings groups, just select the ones your want or create a new one.

Note: If you want actions to copy or move you need to edit the action from the account, simply because these actions needs the account connection to work, and these actions can't be shared in multiple accounts. (you need to create a new group when copying or moving emails for each account).
