hMailserver and email clients

Hi there,

I recently removed Zimbra from my lab, and am using hMailserver.  I need this for things like Veeam, Log Insight, APC UPS, vCenter and other apps to be able to share with me.  I like to get backup reports, admin warnings, test results and other things via email.  Much more powerful when I do not need to access the app to get the info.

I shared with you recently an article on making hMailserver work.  I thought that was the hard part due to some oddness.  But now I have Outlook 2016 and Thunderbird mail clients and I need them working and while it did not take long it was not very intuitive.  So in case I have to do it again, I am recording info on it in this article.

Outlook 2016

Don’t use SSL, and use an incoming server for the Outgoing server configuration.  See my config below.

NewhM

Thunderbird

Don’t use SSL, and use an incoming server for the Outgoing server configuration.  See my config below.

thunderbird

hMailserver

I should note that this is a lab mail server and it is not accessible from the Internet.  If it was, I would not do passwords in the clear and no certs.  At some point I will put it on Internet, and will need to make changes.

Here is the config for the mail server on the inside of my lab.

hMailserver

You can see in the screenshot above that nothing from external can come in, and that authentication on SMTP is not required.

When I was having trouble with the config and trying to make Outlook and Thunderbird work I used this article from hMailserver but it did not help much.

Hope that this helps, and as always, let me know if you have comments or suggestions.

Michael
