POPFile is an email [[Glossary:AProxy | proxy]]. In the simpliest possible installation, POPFile is an intermediary that passes along communications between your [[Glossary:EmailClient | email client]] (e.g. //Outlook//) and your [[Glossary:MailServer | email server]] (e.g. //pop.your_isp.com//).

A mail client sends a request through POPFile to the mail server for email. The mail server responds by sending the email to POPFile which tags the email with categories or buckets and delivers them immediately to the mail client.

If you are using any additional email proxies with POPFile such as certain antivirus software, YahooPOPs, YPOPs! or Hotpopper, you need to configure them to work together in a daisy chained fashion like so: If you are using any additional email proxies with POPFile such as certain antivirus software, YahooPOPs, YPOPs! or Hotpopper, you need to configure them to work together in a daisy chained fashion like so:

This allows a virus checker to check email for viruses before they reach POPFile or your mail client or for YahooPOPs or YPOPs! to fetch mail from a Yahoo account.  Note that you want to avoid conflicts with other proxies by either a) using different ports or b) a different IP address. However, a different IP address is often not practical for this particular application because your proxies (e.g. virus checker and spam checker) are running together on your local machine. If none of that makes sense, that's okay it isn't essential to using POPFile. Keep reading on.
