This page details steps for setting up common e-mail clients to access accounts on our mail server.


If it is your first time running Thunderbird, you will be prompted to setup a new account. It should look like this:

Enter your name, e-mail address and the password for your e-mail account. You may be prompted with the following security warning:

This is normal, just click Confirm Security Exception. Next you will be presented with the settings autogenerated by Thunderbird. You will need to make some minor changes to these settings. Click the "Edit" button on this screen:

Set the outgoing port to 465 and the encryption settings next to SSL/TLS. It should look like this:

Once the changes are made click Re-test Configuration. You should now have green lights next to both incoming and outgoing server options. All you need to do now is click Create Account and you will be able to access your e-mail in Thunderbird.
