We all use Thunderbird, yay! So, in Thunderbird:

  • Go to "Add account"
  • Select email account
  • Name for outgoing mail: Students for Free Culture
  • First address we're setting up: newgroup@freeculture.org
  • Type of email server: IMAP
  • Username: newgroup
  • Password: (ask Nelson) :p
  • Go to mailbox settings, then server settings, then select 'TLS if available'
  • Login!

Goal with this inbox: turn interested contacts and baby chapters into registered, approved, happy(?) chapters!

Make sure you have the stars column set in your Thunderbird. Stars are for messages at 1.) require a reply and 2.) have not been replied to.

There are four folders associated with this inbox:

  • Junk - All the random spam that Thunderbird lovingly culls.
  • Registration - auto-emails from our registration form go here.
  • RepliedTo - for stuff that does not require more replies, e.g. the chapter has been registered and approved, and all is peachy.
  • SpamProbably - Sometimes people think that we actually give chapters money and try to scam us. How amusing.
