IMAP at Stacken
Stacken now has an IMAP server that can be used by members who want a more modern way of handling email than POP3
IMAP is a way of accessing mail stored remotely. It's a replacement for POP, where mail is fetched from the mail server and stored locally, with a lot of features such as ACL's and shared folders. It's greatest advantage is that mail folders are stored on the server, allowing multiple clients to access the same messages
How do I access my email?
Use the server
imap.stacken.kth.se. If you aren't
using Kerberos / GSSAPI authentication, you also need to use SSL
and enter your normal login password
How do I get an account
Ask an admin to run
$USER for you, and then echo
to your .forward file (which should live in Public with a symlink
from your $HOME).
How do I create new mailboxes?
cyradm, found in the
cyrus-imapd module in Stacken's Solaris 9
