  • E-mails


Due to design implementation, the SMTP connector has the following limitations:

  • Distributed crawling
    • Due the nature of the SMTP library, distributed crawling is not supported.
  • Traditional Full/Incremental crawling
    • The connector works by setting up an SMTP that will listen to incoming e-mails and send them to Aspire for processing.
  • Access Control Lists (ACLs)
    • All of the incoming e-mails are assumed to be public.
