FRITZ!Box 7340 – Service

Configuring the push service

You can have the push service send you emails with the connection and usage data of the FRITZ!Box at regular intervals or when certain events occur. Then the FRITZ!Box notifies you when a new FRITZ!OS is available, when you have new messages on your answering machine, or if you missed a call, for example. You can also have a backup file with your settings sent to you automatically before every FRITZ!OS update.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • You must use an email account with a POP3 email server.
  • POP3 download must be enabled with your email provider.

    Note:You can enable download in your email account settings. Refer to your email provider for information on how to set it up.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.
