     POP Mail Connector in Boomi works with Gmail account to retrieve attachments for processing, but when mail is left on the server (not deleted), the mail can not be re-retrieved.


     Within the Gmail account settings, emails are to keep as unread after accessed with POP:

  •           Within Gmail, click on the gear icon in the upper-right and select Settings


  •           Click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab:


  •           Under POP Download, Enable POP for All Mail and select 'keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox':


  •           At the bottom, click on Save:



     Gmail POP will only download once, but you can used this method to get the last 30 days emails:

     For Gmail and all other POP clients, replace '' in your POP client settings with ''. It will then re-retrieve older messages on subsequent process runs.
