What is the Collector in Arua?

Modified on Wed, 13 Dec 2023 at 06:06 PM

The Collector enables Arua to automatically find and process relevant emails. The Collector can either be set up to detect invoices etc in "your inbox" or be configured to digest everything in the case you have a dedicated inbox for administrative emails.

Action needed: 

1.  Open Settings on the left sidebar

And click on Collector

2.  Click on + Add New Email in the top right-hand corner of your screen.

3.  Fill in the new email address

Graphical user interface, text, application

Description automatically generated

    And click on Connect Mailbox

     You will be asked for login details for the mail server that you are connecting to.

4.  If you have a Google account, you will need to follow these guidelines (How to permit Arua to link to your Google email account) to link it to Arua. The below screenshot is for non-Microsoft/Google email accounts and connects to any standard IMAP or POP email server. In the case your email box resides in Microsoft, you will be taken through a series of steps to approve Arua to connect to the mailbox, In the case of google you need to follow the specific steps described above instead.

The black list items can be used to block out certain email accounts to be excluded.  Use a space between multiple addresses.  If you want to add this later, please delete your collector and add it again.


5.  Now your mailbox is connected and monitored.
