5.11. Adding E-Mail Accounts

By default, you use your primary email account in the groupware. If you use additional email accounts, like e.g. GMail, you can add those accounts to the groupware. This allows you to access those accounts' email messages from within the groupware.

How to add an E-Mail account:

  1. Click on Add E-Mail Account in the folder view. The Add E-Mail Account window opens.

  2. Click an icon. The next procedure depends on the E-Mail account provider.

    • For some providers, a new browser window opens. Log in with your credentials to grant access to the E-Mail account.

    • If the provider asks you for the permission to access the data, grant this permission.

    • For some providers, enter your credentials in the Add E-Mail Account window. Then, click on Add.

    You can also manually enter the required data by clicking on Manually.

  3. If the E-Mail messages in this account are also to be shown in the Unified Mail folder, enable Use unified mail for this account.

    Note: Depending on the configuration, this function might not be available.

An entry for the E-Mail account appears in the folder view. The entry contains this account's E-Mail folders. Open one of those folders to do the following:

  • read this account's E-Mail messages

  • send E-Mail messages from this account

If the access to the E-Mail account fails, a warning icon will be displayed next to E-Mail account's name. Depending on the E-Mail provider, you will get troubleshooting notes when clicking the warning icon.
