    If i create an e-mail box in ISPConfig3, how do i connect my email client with it?
    I've created a DNS record mail.mydomain.com A record and an MX record.
    Which of the following settings do i specify in my email client:
    -account (is this the email address or alias)
    -mailserver, i suppose this is the mail.mydomain.com i have in my DNS records
    -encryption, none, SSL or TLS?
    -requires authentication yes/no?

    I looked this up in the manual but couldn't find it.

    Account name is the full e-mail address

    The FQDN of the mailserver, the host where you have installed dovecot (or whatever mail server you use)
    Surely you do not want to allow access without authentication? Answer yes.

    Is STARTTLS the only option? What if my client of web application only supports SSL or TLS?
