    Mail Client Setup

    Setting up your mail client to access your mail is easy! If you haven't already done so, use the control_mail tool to enable mail services for your domain. Be sure to check your ~/mail_info/ directory for your postmaster password. Once that's done, you can get started with configuring your mail!

    Mail setup falls in two categories - managing mail accounts and accessing your mail.

    To access your mail, you'll need to know a few pieces of information:

    • the name of the mail account you want to check (i.e. me@mydomain.com)
    • the password for this account
    • the name of the IMAP server at GeekISP - its 'mail.geekisp.com' (no quotes)
    • the name of the SMTP server at GeekISP - surprisingly, its also 'mail.geekisp.com' (again, no quotes)
    • we require SMTP Authentication - that means that your mail program uses a password to send mail - not just check it
    • we require SSL - so that your password is protected at all times

    If you want to access your mail via the web, you just need to know the first two items above and point your browser at http://sqmail.geekisp.com. Once there, enter your full email address (i.e. me@mydomain.com) and your password. Thats it - you can check your mail from anywhere!

    If you like using Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora, Netscape Messenger, Mac OS's Mail.app or any other mail program you might have on your home or work computer, you can easily setup your mail client to talk to our servers.

    If you're using a client that is not listed here, please send us an email at support@geekisp.com and we'll do our best to get you up and running.

    Once you're all configured and sending mail as normal, you may be interested in TMDA-ofmipd for use with TMDA. It provides a way to automatically add your mail correspondents to your whitelist whenever you send a mail.
