|Email account Settings|
If you can receive your@SBAMUG.com email, but suddenly can’t send; try change your sending SMTP port to 587. APOP password encryption is not supported & will not work. Passwords must be at least 9 characters long, and not a dictionary word. Thank you.
WEB MAIL. To use the WebMail, you can connect to this url; https://webmail.dreamhost.com
The Email Help sections have detailed sections for configuring these email applications;
Other email programs are set up in a similar way. If you’d like to make a nice set of screen shots for another email program for our server, I’ll be happy to post it here.
Basic settings for SBAMUG mail: (you want IMAP, not POP)
Account type: IMAP
Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Full Name: User Name (Your Real Name)
Incoming IMAP server: mail.sub5.dreamhost.com
User Name: email@example.com
SMTP server: mail.sub5.dreamhost.com Port 587, requires password authentication. (same as incoming)
You have a new SBAMUG.com mailbox and/or website.
Your username & password are probably as you requested. You received your username and password by email. Substitute in your own user name & your own password, as you received in the email, into the below instructions.
- your email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- pop mail server: mail.sub5.dreamhost.com
- smtp mail server: mail.sub5.dreamhost.com
- Requires authentication (same as receiving server)
- Port 587
- Optional & not necessary: See the detailed pages for the exact How To on setting up SSL secure connection to the mail server.
You can also access your email by the web at: https://webmail.dreamhost.com
Email InBox Management
If you get a lot of “list mail” or “eGroup” mail, and it’s cluttering up your email InBox, you might like to know how to have those group emails sort themselves into a folder so you can look at them when you’re ready, after reading the jokes & virus warnings your friends and family send you.
Here’s how for Apple Mail,
- server: ftp.sbamug.com
- path: (leave blank)
- username: username
- password: password
Of course, you’ll need to use your own user name & password! 🙂
You’ll need a FTP client application to upload your web files to your web folder on the SBAMUG web server. Unless your site is complex, we suggest that you put all html files & images in the same folder. Paul Bauer has written up a How-To on making & uploading a website. Read it here.
There are a number of Web page creation programs, including:
Mozilla SeaMonkey (free)
Web Page Counter
You can add a page counter to your personal SBAMUG web site
See Counter.DreamHost.com for full details
Be sure to paste it into the html source code, not your web page “Layout Mode”.
