Thunderbird Email Setup: MsbMesh Network Service – Citadel Server
Herewith a short/cryptic basic setup/configuration for Thunderbird Email on the Citadel Server.
This cryptic manual is for Windows XP Pro and Thunderbird 52.4.0 (32 bit) version
Click to open Thunderbird.
Once open click on tools and then on Account Settings.
Create a new account. I used Msbmesh Email
Your name. I used Johan
Email Address. I used ZS1I@msbmesh.ddns.net
Leave every thing else as is and go to Outgoing Server (SMTP) near the bottom of the page. I added
Msbmesh Email – IP address where your server is located. I use a Raspberry Pi as my server and added the IP of the Raspberry Pi
Click on Server Setting on the left index.
Now add your server name: (IP Address)
User name: (Your email address) ZS1I@msbmesh.ddns.net
Leave everything else as is.
A new account should appear in the left hand block of Thunderbird showing all your email boxes.
(Inbox, Send, Trash etc.)
Security Settings – Connection Security: STARTTLS
Authentication method: Normal Password
You should be ready to go. If you experience any problems then Google Search is your friend. I
can unfortunately not go into all the details here. REMEMBER: Versions of Thunderbird will
differ for each OS you use. ( Windows, Mac or Linux)
Remember Google Search if you experience and problems. It solved all my problems!!
