Help with phone setup

First, my new MIAB server is setup and running fine!

My rather silly problem now is setting up my Android 8.1.0 phone to work with my server.

My phone email setup is asking for these items and I have supplied the info as follows:

Email address: myname at mydomain dot com
Password: my miab password for the email above
Account Type: IMAP4
IMAP4 Server: box dot mydomain dot com
Security Type: SSL
Port Number: 993
Username: myname at mydomain dot com
SMTP Server: smtp dot box dot mydomain dot com (This info is missing from instructions*)
Security Type; SSL
Port Number: 587
Sign in required Yes
Username: myname at mydomain dot com

Error returned is “Setup incomplete. Cannot connect to server. Try again after checking connections and entered info.”

Could someone please check this out and let me know where I am going wrong. I did follow the instructions on the miab admin Mail Instructions page.

Thank you in advance.

I think this should still be box dot mydomain dot com
There is no smtp dot box dot mydomain dot com in DNS records so it will never work.

It is in instructions: Mail server

Thanks for the reply Glennmen,

I have not had time to back to setting up my phone.

I will update when I do, hopefully shortly.


It is missing because it is inaccurate.

If you followed the naming conventions used throughout the setup guide, the SMTP server will be box.domain.tld.
