What are the mail server settings to set up Thunderbird for older versions?

To use an Email client such as Mozilla Thunderbird with our email system, please use the following information to configure your client older than Thunderbird version 3.1.2.

Incoming server:

Server Type: IMAP (Students, staff & faculty)

  • For Students:  students.rider.edu  

  • For Staff and Faculty:  mail.rider.edu

Outgoing server

  • For Student: smtp.rider.edu ( Port 587 with TLS)
  • Faculty and Staff:  smtp.rider.edu ( Port 587 with TLS)

The outgoing server must be setup on port "587" and requires username and password authentication.  In addition you must configure the outgoing server to use a "TLS, if available" connection on the outgoing server.
