Configuration of mail clients for the mail server
14.8. Configuration of mail clients for the mail server#
The use of IMAP is recommended for using a mail client with the UCS mail server. STARTTLS is used to switch to a TLS-secured connection after an initial negotiation phase when using SMTP (for sending mail) and IMAP (for receiving/synchronizing mail). Password (plain text) should be used in combination with STARTTLS as the authentication method. The method may have a different name depending on the mail client. The following screenshot shows the setup of Mozilla Thunderbird as an example.
