Configuration of Email Programs

The configuration depends on the kind of email program ("email client") which you use to read your email. All clients have to define the connections to our email server infrastructure. The most important information is summarized in the following table. For a couple of well known email clients such as Outlook and Thunderbird as well as for the web access a more detailed description of the configuration is available.
