    - Leave a copy of retrieved message on the server: It will tick, if we want Gmail to keep a copy of the emails on the external server. If this option is not checked, Gmail will delete emails on the external server.
    - Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail: Connections will be made strictly through secure ports.
    - Label incoming messages: It will be checked if we want to set a label for emails downloaded from the external box.
    - Archive incoming messages (Skip the Inbox): It will be checked if we want emails from the external box to be archived upon receipt (they will not appear in the Inbox, they will be saved in an archive).
