tilde.team has a mailserver. here are your options:

clients and connection settings

- mutt - should work out of the box - alpine - should work out of the box - webmail - imap/smtp - email address: username@tilde.team (or any of the aliased domains) - username: username (without the domain) - password: your shell password - imap: imap.tilde.team port 143 (starttls) - smtp: smtp.tilde.team port 587 (starttls) - (any subdomain of tilde.team works for smtp and imap. just make sure you have tls selected) - some clients will autoconfigure (tested with thunderbird)

alternate domains and addresses

because ~ben hoards domain names, you can use any of the domains on this list with your tildemail: mail sent to yourusername@ any of those domains will end up in your inbox. most clients will allow you to add additional identities/aliases. additionally, any address with a - or + and arbitrary text behind it will be forwarded to you email: ie. your_username+somethingcool@tildeteam.org or yourusername-notcool@tilde.site. feel free to use as many as you’d like :)

forwarding and sieve

if you would like your tildemail to be forwarded somewhere else, put that email address in ~/.forward bash echo myotheraddress@example.com > ~/.forward we also have sieve and managesieve support. scripts belong in ~/sieve/, with the active sieve script in ~/.dovecot.sieve (to conform with managesieve). here are some example sieve scripts managesieve is available on the default port (4190) if you want to use an external managesieve client (like the thunderbird add-on). webmail is pre-configured to work with your local sieve scripts. — ask ~ben if you have any questions
