CS Email (@cs.ualberta.ca forwarding)

We no longer support an e-mail store within the Department so you will need to have your mail forwarded to either IST/Google or another alternate address as appropriate.

By default we will forward it to your <CCID>@ualberta.ca address unless you specify otherwise. Eventually you will be able to configure this yourself but currently you will need to contact ist@cs.ualberta.ca to make any changes.

In order to access your e-mail through PINE or MUTT within our Department you will be required to configure/re-configure your mail client appropriately. Please contact your e-mail provider for these details.

For information on IST e-mail setup please visit http://ist.ualberta.ca/email

Suggested .pinerc settings from some of our users

personal-name=MY NAME user-domain=ualberta.ca user-id=CCID@ualberta.ca smtp-server=smtp.gmail.com:587/tls/novalidate-cert/user=CCID@ualberta.ca inbox-path={imap.gmail.com/ssl/user=CCID@ualberta.ca} default-fcc={imap.gmail.com/ssl}INBOX.sent-mail default-saved-msg-folder={imap.gmail.com/ssl}INBOX.saved-messages postponed-folder={imap.gmail.com/ssl}INBOX.postponed-msgs folder-collections=Mail {imap.gmail.com/ssl}[INBOX.]

Suggested .muttrc settings

set imap_force_ssl=yes set imap_list_subscribed=no set folder = "imaps://imap.gmail.com:993" set spoolfile = "+INBOX" set postponed = "+[Gmail]/Drafts" set record= "+[Gmail]/Sent Mail" set move = no

The next line allows you to save the certificate by chosing a the first time so that it does not prompt you every time, just make sure you previously do mkdir -p ~/.mutt to create the directory to store the certificate file.
set certificate_file=~/.mutt/certificate

The next lines need to be customized to YOUR address.
set imap_user="CCID@ualberta.ca"
set from = "CCID@ualberta.ca"
set realname = "Your Real Name"
