    Default Thunderbird IMAP

    Ok, I must be going crazy. I must be missing something obvious but I can't get Thunderbird to connect to zimbra using an IMAP account. Can someone share their settings (server and client) to help me out.

    Thanks.

    Default OOps my bad

    I did see that message, but didn't read it close enough. The clear text option did it for me.

    Now for the next part of this, is there a way to require a username and password be used to send mail through SMTP? I'm concerned that any spammer might use the server to send mail. Is there a way to do that or are my concerns unfounded?

    Well, your users need to login with a username/password but I guess you mean in case you're being used as an open relay? Have a look at this page and you can test the system yourself.

    Default well that worked

    I seem to have passed all the anonymous tests. I guess I'm not as familiar with all this as I thought. What I was concerned about is that in Thunderbird I removed the "Use Name and Password" checkbox from the SMTP config and mail still went through. Shouldn't I require users to provide name and password?

    By default if Thunderbird is on the same network it will let you send with out auth. Try from a external network or different LAN.
