Accessing EMail from desktop client(outlook/thunderbird)
Hey everyone

I set up and email server using dovecot and sendmail and am currently accessing all email from SquirrelMail web based client.

I am looking to move from using SM to a desktop based client, specifically Thunderbird or Outlook.

Where abouts would I find all the settings needed to transfer over? It usually asks the name of the pop3/imap server such as or Is it standard to be just Would i just type that in?

Also, what about the SMTP out server? Is this located in a config file somewhere?

Not so bright when it comes to this :cry:

pop and smtp server names would be the DNS name of your mail server..
you could also use the IP address of your mail server for those entries...
