POP3 Email Setup as Data Source
I am trying to set up a POP3 Email as a data source. The outlook pop setting requires the Encryption method: TLS. However, but there is no encryption method selection field on the Data Source setup page. Can someone please advise how we can set up POP3 Email using an Outlook account?

To my knowledge, the pop3 datasource does not support a secure pop connection.
I got around it by setting up my own pop3 email server with postfix and dovecot.
It could only receive, not send and I set up an automatic forwarder to push emails into it. Then I used mango to parse the data on the same server with the datasource.
So basically the set up is a little bit of a pain, but once you have it configured you can then parse whatever you push into that inbox.
Thanks Matt for the suggestion.
