The name or address of the mail server (IMAP server).
def get_mail_server() -> str: ... def set_mail_server(value: str) -> None: ...
mail_server = property(get_mail_server, set_mail_server)
This property specifies the IP address (IP number in dotted internet format) or Domain Name of the mail server. It must be set before a connection is attempted and cannot be changed once a connection is in progress.
If this property is set to a Domain Name, a DNS request is initiated. Upon successful termination of the request, the mail_server property is set to the corresponding address. If the search is not successful, an error is returned.
If the class is configured to use a SOCKS firewall, the value assigned to this property may be preceded with an "*". If this is the case, the host name is passed to the firewall unresolved and the firewall performs the DNS resolution.
