Configuration of the mail program
Host - Username - Mailaddress
Each mail program expects the specification for which user and to which host an e-mail is to be read. In this case, the user is the user ID assigned to you on the ITW server system. The e-mail address is your email@example.com or your firstname.lastname@example.org.
The alias name is usually composed of firstname.lastname and ultimately represents your identifier on the server system. All e-mail programs, be it Eudora, Pegasus, Outlook, Thunderbird or Netscape Messenger, etc. can be set up in the same way. Do not be confused by the sometimes different names of the email programs for one and the same entry.
If it is e.g. called: Server for incoming mail, POP3 or IMAP host - Please enter pop.wzw.tum.de or - imap.wzw.tum.de
SMTP or server for outgoing mail
- please enter smtp.wzw.tum.de
Your account name, user name, pop account, identifier
- please enter the identifier in this field.
Reply Address, Mailadress
- email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
Configuration of the modem access
Radius zone @ wzw.tum.de
Your user ID entitles you to use the modem access provided by the Leibniz Computer Center Munich.
This service is called Remote Authentication Dial-in-User Service, that is radius. Currently, the following number can be used: 089-358319000
The current status can be found on the websites of the LRZ, LRZ service modem / ISDN access. There you will also find a detailed description of setting up a modem / ISDN access.
The most important settings for using the radius zone:
the username for your dial-up connection is kennung[at]wzw.tum.de
and the password is the one you use on the server system to read emails.
The advantage of dialing in via the telephone number of the LRZ is on the one hand in the elimination of the usual fee, if you choose another provider, on the other hand you get for his computer an IP address from the area of ??MHN Munich university network, which u.a. allows unrestricted access to TU Library pages.
Also sending e-mails with e.g. smtp.wzw.tum.de as outgoing mail host is possible, where else one must enter the mail host of the currently used provider.
The ITW offers a range of mailing lists. These are distribution lists for e-mail that you can subscribe to. An overview can be found on the page tuwza7y-mailman01.wzw.tum.de/mailman/listinfo. For example, you can reach all the scientific staff on the campus through the "wissma" list.
To enter one of the lists, click on it in the overview above, enter your e-mail address in the fields and assign a password if required. Some of the mailing lists are so-called moderated lists, i. Registrations and later also the contributions are checked by one person and only then accepted. This mechanism guarantees that no unsolicited e-mails can be sent to the list members.
The ITW will gladly set up new lists for you, please contact Mr. Becker; by phone: +49 8161 71-4506 or by e-mail to becker [at] wzw.tum.de.
