Generic Mail Configuration Info

Make sure your client supports at least one of CRAM-MD5, DIGEST-MD5, STARTTLS, or SSL (pretty much every modern IMAP client does). You will need the following information:

  • your CSAIL username (which will be configured into your mail app) and your IMAP password (which you will enter when retrieving mail).
  • as the incoming (IMAP) server.
    • enable TLS if the client supports it (on port 143), otherwise enable SSL (on port 993)
    • if prompted, choose CRAM-MD5 or DIGEST-MD5 authentication
  • as the outgoing (SMTP) server
    • enable SMTP authentication and enable TLS
    • use port 587 (instead of port 25)
    • if prompted, choose CRAM-MD5 as the authentication method
