IMAP Mail server

Now:

IMAP mail server:       imap.nikhef.nl
Connection Security:    SSL/TLS  (port 993)

After migration mail folders to new Cyrus IMAP server:

IMAP mail server:       imaps.nikhef.nl
Connection Security:    SSL/TLS  (port 993)


PINE IMAP configuration.

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={imaps.nikhef.nl/ssl}inbox
folder-collections={imaps.nikhef.nl/ssl}[]


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

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.
