Configuration

In order to connect to Kydara E-Mail server with a standard desktop or mobile client, use the following settings. Not all clients will need all details, in particular, most clients will try to auto-detect port and IMAP/SMTP servers, so leave those fields empty unless the client requires otherwise.

There are three ways of connecting: IMAP with SMTP, Microsoft Exchange emulation (with instant notifications), and web UI.

Encryption is mandatory for all clients.

IMAP with SMTP

Recommended for desktop clients.

Setting Value
Username: <user>@kydara.com (It is important to write the FULL e-mail address)
Password: <password>
Authentication type: plain (Because connections are encrypted, your password is safe)
Encryption: TLS or StartTLS
IMAP server: imap.kydara.com
IMAP port: 993
SMTP server: smtp.kydara.com
SMTP port: 587

This server supports IMAP IDLE.

Exchange

Alternative to IMAP with push (instant notifications). May not work reliably, because it is a reimplementation of Microsoft’s protocol.

Setting Value
Username: <user>@kydara.com (It is important to write the FULL e-mail address)
Password: <password>
Server: mail.kydara.com
Domain: <leave blank>
IMAP server: imap.kydara.com
IMAP port: 993
SMTP server: smtp.kydara.com
SMTP port: 587
