In another thread it was mentioned, that Haiku’s E-Mail preferences can auto-fill some settings to make adding email accounts easier. The prefs recognize certain providers by the email address you enter. You can have a look which providers are supported by looking at ProviderInfos available.
Those .rdef files are filled with the necessary info, described in the ReadMe.
Does anyone use a provider successfully via Haiku’s mail_daemon, that doesn’t have such an .rdef yet? We could add one.
Or did you have to change settings that were incorrectly auto-filled? We could correct the settings in the .rdef.
If you can work out the right .rdef contents yourself by consulting the ReadMe, great! If not, screenshots of the E-Mail prefs “Incoming” and “Outgoing” settings are OK, too.
(Esp. a working Yahoo account would be interesting, as those currently don’t seem to work with the mail_daemon. Which might not be a configuration problem, but something else, deeper in the system…)
