Tips and trick for the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client.

IMAP Mail server

IMAP hostname/port:

hostname: imap.nikhef.nl, imaps.nikhef.nl
port:     993 / SSL


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


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 imap server:


Outgoing mail server


Hostname: mail.nikhef.nl, smtp.nikhef.nl, smtps.nikhef.nl
