Configuring school email in third-party client
« on: October 24, 2020, 05:20:02 PM »
Hi. I'm a Sixth-Form student, and something of an open-source nut. I use ThunderBird as my email client, but have had difficulty configuring my c2ken email to it. I can read my mail in Outlook, but I don't like Microsoft of web apps much, so while it's not urgent that I get it set up, it would be nice to have my school email in the same spot as the rest, without having to open a web page to check it.

For both my Hotmail and Gmail personal accounts, ThunderBrid auto-configured them easy with my address and password, no problem. Not so with the school one. I have very limited knowledge of how email works, or c2k, so I was wondering if anyone here could help me out.

The manual configuration I've been trying is attached. Both blocked out areas are set to my school username alone (as in with no domain).

IMAP host name is, Port 993
SMTP is, port 587

Your username for both should be
