  • What are the recommended Thunderbird Mail client settings?

(This article applies only to those accounts migrated to our new platform from 2018 onwards).

There are various methods of connecting to mailboxes on our platform. We always recommend IMAP as that helps keep messages in sync between various devices and our webmail system. This is our recommended configuration for Thunderbird mail clients.

Incoming Server (“Account Settings” > “Server Settings”)

Server Name: imap.stackmail.com
Username: Your e-mail address
Port: 993
Connection security: SSL/TLS
Authentication method: ‘Normal password’

Outgoing Server (SMTP)

Server Name: smtp.stackmail.com
Port: 587
Connection Security: STARTTLS
Authentication method: ‘Normal password’
Username: Your e-mail address

If you choose to use domain-branded server names, such as mail.your-domain or imap.your-domain, the secure connection may throw a certificate warning due to a common name mismatch. This can be safely trusted and your connection will remain secure.
