E-mail messages for the lngs.infn.it domain pass through the smtp.lngs.infn.it mail server that delivers them to gsmail.lngs.infn.it IMAP server, which acts as an e-mail container.
So, an user can access his email on the gsmail.lngs.infn.it server from any node on the local network or from any external node via the IMAPS protocol.
Alternatively, an user can access his email using any web browser that supports https protocol.
The following tables list the configurations for e-mails client.
|Protocol and Port||IMAP on 993 port (SSL/TLS)||We recommend using "normal password" option|
|User Name||The user name (username) is not necessarily equal to the email address.||
Usually, the surname is used as the username whereas the email address is something similar than firstname.lastname@example.org.
|Protocol and Port||SMTP on 25 port||It is not yet requested authentication within LAN laboratory|
For laptops and smartphones, set the outgoing server with authentication (used outside LNGS).
|Protocol and Port||SSL on 465 port|
Users can access their email accounts via webmail using the http://gsmail.lngs.infn.it URL.
After using their credentials, users will access the SquirrelMail application that serves as a graphical interface of the IMAP server.
