Proper Email Configuration for DigiTimber Services

Configuring Email Clients to work with your DigiTimber services
(Outlook on Windows Example)

1. Click on the Start Button, and either select Control Panel, or search for it from the list.

2. Mail (<version of Outlook here>) from the list. (You may need to specify 'Show Small Icons' from the upper right pulldown to find it)

Note: We have found with some users, the Control Panel is missing the Mail settings. To access the configuration screen, Click on Start and type 'run' and hit enter. Type 'outlook.exe /manageprofiles' and press enter.

3. Click on the 'Email Accounts' button

4. Select the email account you wish to update or verify and click 'Change or Properties' from the menu

5. Ensure that your mail server is set to mail.<yourdomain.tld>

Server Settings

6. Select the 'More Settings' button from the lower right of the window

7. Click on the 'Advanced' Tab

8. Ensure that the 'Incoming server' is set to SSL/TLS and the port is 993 (IMAP) or 995 (POP3)

9. Ensure that the 'Outgoing server' is set to STARTTLS and the port is 587 (or SSL/TLS and port 465)

Advanced Settings


10. Testing the account should work as expected (simple way is to send an email to someone and verify it moves from the outbox to the sent items)
