CT will migrate your mail folders to a new mail IMAP/POP server and inform about the procedure and timing.

What you have to do yourself depends on how exactly you use the mail server at Nikhef.

Here are the basic facts of the mail migration.


If you forward your mail ...

... you have recently received an e-mail with the instruction how to reconfigure your forward (before mail migration).

If you use Linux procmail to process your mail ...

... you may follow these instructions how to redefine the filter rules for your mail delivery after mail migration.

If you use a mail client like Thunderbird, MS Outlook, MacOS Mail, etc...

... you have to change the IMAP or POP mail server name from imap to imaps or pop3 to pop3s after mail migration (details).

If you use webmail as mail client...
