    In This Topic

    eM Client supports IMAP for email, CardDAV for contacts and CalDAV for calendar and XMPP for chat. The Standard version of MailEnable does not support CardDAV, CalDAV or XMPP.


    To configure an email account:

    1. Select Menu > Tools > Accounts
    2. Click the + symbol to add a new account
    3. Select the Mail > Other type of account and click Next
    4. Enter the email address being configured and click Next
    5. Select IMAP or POP3 and enter the server details, username and password and click Next
    6. Enter the SMTP server and the username and password again and click Next


    To configure CardDAV and CalDAV:

    1. In the upper left corner, select Menu > Tools > Accounts. Click the + symbol to Open the "New Account" dialog.
    2. Expand the Calendar section, choose CalDAV then Next.
    3. In the Account URL field, enter the URL to the host/port publishing CalDAV/CardDAV. e.g.:
    4. For the 'User name' field, be sure to enter your full MailEnable username and password in their respective fields.
    5. Complete the wizard and then select either Calendar or Contacts from the left hand panel.

    Note: If you nominate the root for the host site providing DAV services, eM Client will configure both calendaring and addressbooks (i.e.: even though you choose CalDAV, it will also configure CardDAV). You can also directly access calendar resources at:


    You can also directly access addressbook resources at:



    To configure XMPP:

    1. Open Menu|Tools>Accounts 
    2. Click the + button to Add a new account
    3. Select the Chat account type, and specify XMPP/Jabber. Click Next
    4. Select the "use existing Jabber account" option and click next.
    5. For the "Jabber Id", specify your MailEnable email address and your corresponding MailEnable password
    6. Uncheck "automatically detect the host and username".
    7. You should ensure that the "Server host" is the email domain name and that that the username is the fully qualified email address (or mailbox@postoffice format). Example:
    8. Click Next to complete the installation 

    eM Client will automatically detect the mailbox portion of the "Jabber Id" as the username. This will work only if the user belongs to the MailEnable "default postoffice". You should ensure that you specify the fully qualified email address for the username so that emclient uses the email address as the username.

    To simplify client connectivity, it is recommended that you enable the "allow email addresses for usernames" setting via the MailEnable Management Console under Servers|localhost|Auth Policies.
