IMAP is for you if: 

  • You have another mail host than Gmail or Microsoft, that you want to use as a document source.
  • You want to add an extra Gmail or Microsoft mail to your Kontolink account.
  • You need Kontolink to only fetch documents in a specific folder in your mail.

How to connect IMAP

2. Go to the menu in the upper left corner (3 horisontal lines).

3. Click on “Document sources”.


4. Click “Add new”.

5. Choose “Connect to other mail (IMAP)”.


6. Inset your mail information, and
click “Next”.


7. Choose which folder you want to connect to Kontolink. 


There you go, your mail is now connected through IMAP.

If this is not the case, IMAP might have some more steps for you..  The following guide will get you through your manual setup. 

Manual setup IMAP

the full inbox.

If the setup doesn’t go through after the above, it may be due to your settings in your mail account.

You must therefore ensure the following:

  • IMAP is switched on/activated.
  • Allow access to less secure apps.
  • Perchance generate an app password.

Most email providers manage IMAP differently. You can therefore benefit from asking your mail host/provider about IMAP setup. It’s a standard question and they definitely have a guide.
