IMAP Mail server

IMAP hostname/port:

host: imap.nikhef.nl, imaps.nikhef.nl
port: 993

Thunderbird:

Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings
IMAP mail server:       imap.nikhef.nl
Connection Security:    SSL/TLS  (port 993)
Go to: Advanced:
IMAP server directory:  make it empty


PINE IMAP configuration.

Attention: Inform the helpdesk in case you do not see your folders after migration.

Note: We are solving some certificate issues, for now use (al)pine on login2.nikhef.nl

Modify the file ~/.pinerc in your home directory accordingly to connect PINE to the new imap server:

inbox-path={imap.nikhef.nl/ssl}inbox
folder-collections={imap.nikhef.nl/ssl}[]
default-fcc={imap.nikhef.nl/ssl}sent-mail

POP mail server

Now:

POP mail server:       pop3.nikhef.nl

After migration mail folders to new Cyrus POP server:

POP mail server:           pop3s.nikhef.nl
Connection Security:       SSL/TLS  (port 995)
Use secure authentication: No

Note: pop3s instead of pop3 makes the difference between old and new IMAP servers. When the mail upgrade is completely finished both pop3 and pop3s can be used.
