Platon Support Configuration of e-mail client Mozilla Thunderbird

Configuration of e-mail client Mozilla Thunderbird

This is a brief guide how to configure e-mail client Mozilla Thunderbird for fetching of e-mail messages from mailboxes on the Platon Webhosting. As an example on the pictures is used domain, however this procedure can be applicable for any domain hosted on our servers.

In the first stev we choose regular (common) e-mail account.

We enter our name and e-mail address.

Let's choose IMAP as a type for e-mail downloading and we enter as an incoming server. As an outgoing server we set up

We fill usernames for these server, which are identical with our e-mail address in pattern.

Please check settings. If they are correct, you can commit changes.

Because Platon Webhosting is using secure connection to e-mail mailboxes, it is neccessary to perform some additional configuration. For our account we choose server setting and we check option usage of secure connection over SSL.

After this we may start to fetch messages from mailbox on Platon Webhosting. Due to secure type of connection, it is required to confirm validity of cetificate. You can do this temporarily for one session, or permanentnly.

After certificate confirm, we enter a mailbox password.

In the INBOX we should see welcome message from e-mail administrator.
