Basic Email (Mailserv and Tigger) accounts can be accessed by a variety of desktop email clients, such as Microsoft Outlook for Windows and Mac OS X, Mozilla ThunderbirdApple Mail, as well as mobile devices running Android, iOS (iPhone, iPod touch and iPad) and others.

Setting up a new account with Thunderbird is easy; you give Thunderbird your name, email address, and password. Thunderbird then looks up the  connection details (such as ports, server names, security protocols, etc.) in its database. It knows about ACCC Basic email accounts and about mail.uic.edu, the email server that you use to connect to your ACCC Basic email account.

The ACCC runs an LDAP server that you can use to look up the names and email addresses of people using NetID@uic.edu email addresses. This page explains how to use this LDAP server with Mozilla Thunderbird and with Eudora OSE, which is based on Thunderbird.

Thunderbird 3 and Eudora OSE (Penelope Eudora)

The ACCC supports Mozilla's Firefox browser and asks that everyone use it whenever they can instead of Internet Explorer, so it only seems reasonable that we include instructions on how to set up the Thunderbird email client to use mail.uic.edu. Thunderbird is the email client that goes with Firefox. It's easy to use and quite reasonable. A lot like Firefox, in that way. If you're in search of a new email program, check Thunderbird out. It's nice. (And it does RSS.)
