     1Some tips for using Thunderbird e-mail (currently 3.05) with Dovecot IMAP server on ohm.bu.edu in the EDF:
     2
     3Try not to let it create an account automatically... do it by hand.  Important settings:
     4
     5* Account name "username@ohm.bu.edu" (substitute your user name)
     6* IMAP Mail server
     7 * Name:  ohm.bu.edu  Port:  143
     8 * Security:  STARTTLS (don''t check "secure authentication")
     9 * Under "Advanced:"
     10  * IMAP server directory:  "Mail/" (i.e.) must be your mail directory and end in "/"
     11  * Do not check "Show only subscribed..."
     12  * Do not check "Allow server to override..."
     13
     14For the outgoing SMTP settings, these seem to work fine:
     15
     16* Server name:  physics.bu.edu
     17* Port: 2525
     18* Secure Authentication: No
     19* Connection Security: STARTTLS
