Thunderbird

[Show] : Mail
Click Tools > Account Settings
On the left hand side, towards the bottom, click "Add Account"
Select "Email account", then click Next
Add Your Name and Email Address "joeminer@mst.edu", click Next
Image

Select IMAP if you want to keep your email on the server (I would recommend this since everyone has 1 GB of storage now), POP can be used if you would like Thunderbird to download your email and store it on your PC.

Image
Incoming Server: minermail.mst.edu
click Next

Incoming User Name: joeminer (NOTE: this should already be filled out for you. If not, do NOT include @mst.edu)

Use whatever you would like in the Account Name field. This will be what represents your MST email account on the left hand navigation.

Return to the Tools > Account Settings menu
under the Account you just created go to the "Server Settings"
Ensure that under Security Settings, SSL is selected.
Image

[Show] : SMTP - Used to send your email
Click Tools > Account Settings
On the left hand side, scroll to the bottom and select "Outgoing Server (SMTP)"
Click Add
Image

Image

Server Name: smtp.mst.edu
Port: 25
Check that "Use name and password" is selected
User Name: everything before the @ sign in your email address ("joeminer")
Use Secure Connection: TLS
Note: SSL only works on the smtp with Outlook
TLS is recommended for Mozilla/Netscape clients

[Show] : LDAP - Used to look up email addresses at MS&T
Click Tools > Account Settings > Composition and Addressing
Image

Name: MST LDAP
Hostname: ldap.mst.edu
Base DN: OU=Accounts,DC=mst,DC=edu
Port number: 389
Bind DN: username@mst.edu
Use secure connection (SSL) is UNchecked
Image

On the Advanced tab, I suggest 50 results max at a time, and to click "Subtree" LDAP still causes thunderbird security warnings, so watch out for it. Failure to include a proper Base DN will result in a surprising lack of results. This will only give UMR/S&T addresses, not other UM system schools addresses.

Apple Mail

[Show] : Mail
Open Mail
Click Tools > Add Account
Fill in your Full Name, Email Address, and Password associated with your S&T account. Click Continue.
Image

Select "Exchange" from the drop down box. In the Description field, you can name it whatever you please, but I would suggest S&T.

Image
Account Type: Exchange
Incoming Mail Server: minermail.mst.edu
Incoming User Name: joeminer (NOTE: this should already be filled out for you. If not, do NOT include @mst.edu)
Outlook Web Access Server: minermail.mst.edu

Click Continue.

This will setup the outgoing portion of your e-mail account.
Image

Description: You can use whatever you want.
Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.mst.edu
Ensure the "Use Authentication" box is checked.
Use the same User Name/Password combination as you did in the previous screen.

When you click continue you will have to verify the certificate. Click Show Certificate, then click Always trust and finally click connect.
Image

You will be presented with a screen similar to this.
Image

Ensure that the Account Description and Full Name are the whatever you decided and all the other information lines up with what you have entered. SSL should be on for both Incoming/Outgoing Mail Servers.

Make sure the "Take Account Online" box is checked and click Create. Your email should show up soon in your mail box.

[Show] : SMTP - Used to send your email
Click Mail > Preferences > Accounts. Then under SMTP choose Edit Server List.

Image
Description: S&T
Server Name: smtp.mst.edu

Gmail
Transferring your University email to Gmail!

[Show] : Mail retrieval
So you have this crummy Microsoft Outlook Web Access to interface with your Missouri S&T email.
Image

No searching capabilities, limited automated organization, 1 GB of storage, and... well, it's Microsoft! Gross!

Gmail!
Image

Now, you can import all of your Outlook mail into Gmail using the Gmail Mail Fetcher!

1. From your Gmail Web Interface, select Settings from the top-right corner.
Image

2. On the Settings page, move to Accounts and Imports.
Image

3. On the Import mail and contacts: row, select Import mail and contact.
Intuitive, huh?
Image

4. Step 1: Sign into your other email account. Put your SSO username, like joeminer@mst.edu. Press Continue.
Image

5. Put in your SSO password. Press Continue.
Image

6. Gmail assumes your service is POP3. You need to supply it your SSO username (no domain; just joeminer) and the Server address (minermail.mst.edu). This will all be done over port 995, using SSL encryption for security reasons.
Image


7. Step 2: Import options.
Image

It is your choice what you choose here. I like to Import mail and Add labels to all imported mail for organizational reasons. I also want the copy on the Missouri S&T servers to be deleted so I don't fill up my S&T mailbox with abandoned messages that were downloaded to my Gmail ages ago. This is Google Mail here. You have 7 gigars to fill up. You'll be trying to fill that up for a good chunk of time.

8. Step 3: Finish. You're pretty much done. Migration should occur rather fast (within seconds).
Image

9. When all is done, you should have your S&T Email account listed under Check mail using POP3:.
Image

Working on it. Missouri S&T Antivirus email software flips a few shits when it receives SMTP Confirmation emails from Google. I've filed a ticket.

[Show] : Quick & Dirty
Gmail→Settings→Accounts and Import→Import mail and contacts.
Account to import: Your SSO username, including @mst.edu (joeminer@mst.edu).
Password: Your SSO password.
POP username: SSO username, no domain (joeminer).
POP server: minermail.mst.edu
Port: 995.
SSL: Hell yes enabled.


Thanks to koulevprime for the Gmail walk-through.

Gmail will do all of this minus the LDAP with a couple of clicks.

Pretty sure I'm the origination of the LDAP settings :lol: I learned a lot more than I cared to using an LDAP browser and a few hours, and a couple of complaints to IT... anyways...

In the general tab of the directory server properties I have the following:
Name: umr
hostname: ldap.mst.edu
base dn: OU=Students,OU=Accounts,DC=mst,DC=edu
port number: 3268
bind dn: bjmcn6@mst.edu
SSL is unchecked


If you click on the advanced tab of the directory server properties window, I have the following:
Don't return more than: 1000
Scope: One level
Search Filter: (objectclass=*)

Give those a try and see what happens. I think you might be able to mess with it some more now - I have a feeling if you change scope to subtree and got the base DN above students you might be able to get teachers and students. Right now, you only get MST students.

Edit: I performed the name change and it works as listed above now.

Blitz's fixed the instructions for LDAP and it includes not just students but also professors and organizations.

My outgoing mail does not work with the settings you have provided. I get an error saying unable to connect to smtp.mst.edu via STARTTLS because it doesn't offer STARTTLS in EHLO response.

Any ideas? My mac is setup to go with SSL and works if I click OK on a warning...thunderbird just thinks awhile and then tells me SSL doesn't work either.

Has this been working before? They may just be moving your mailbox..

Nope hasn't worked since the day you posted this thread.

SBC Yahoo in St. Louis blocks port 25 for SMTP outbound mail. I can use port 26 instead of 25 on my personal email accounts, but it looks like minermail doesn't support port 26. Does anyone else have the same problem as me?

smtp.mst.edu requires secure connections IIRC, do you have TLS enabled? Usually ISP's block port 25 inbound to keep you from running servers, it'd be really odd to see port 25 blocked outbound.

Yep, port 25 is blocked for outbound mail. They've been doing that for years, so I have to run my personal email smtp accounts on port 26.

I have TLS enabled, and I am using Thunderbird.

Currently, I'm routing all my outbound MST mail through smtp at gmail. Is that okay to do? It works, but it just doesn't seem right.

Updated the post to make use of the sweet new [spoiler] tag.. ty chank

Also, in the next few days, I'm going to try and write up a walkthrough for Apple Mail. Possibly Outlook if I can get around to reformatting

What are the email settings if I'm trying to setup Minermail with my phone? Is the server IMAP or POP? Also, what are the port numbers, incoming and outgoing mail server names? I have clicked SSL and SMTP. Thanks for the help!
