No Autodiscover

I think I have everything installed correctly but autodiscover isn’t working. I have the cname and SSL cert and I can hit and the Apache page loads but there is nothing there.

System version
NethServer release 6.8 (Final)
Kernel release
nethserver-sogo 1.5.6 1.ns6

Are trying to reach the servernanager? Then please add the port 980.

No I’m looking for auto autodiscover.xml.

What is autodiscover.xml?

Are you talking about this feature: ?

I know dovecot already has some similar feature, but for sure NS doesn’t implement the autodiscovery.xml.

Is this a standard? Can you point us to some documentation? After knowing the whole thing we can help you to implement such a feature :wink:


Hi @giacomo,

I think you are right and is about this feature.
I don’t know this feature is or should be “a standard”, but certainly make easier to setup an email account.
I don’t know if should or not to be implemented on NS. Maybe, if will be implemented, will be a plus.
It is like you want to setup an Exchange email account: you enter only email account and password.
I think also Thunderbird check for this feature when you create a new email account.

Happy FOSDEM 2017 days!
For you and for all who are there!

Smartphones use it too. It makes giving out an e-mail account really easy because you don’t have to provide the user any info other than address and password.

this post seems to indicate that NethServer has an autodiscover feature and all that is required is the CNAME. It’s not working for me though…

Hi Arin;

I don’t really understand if you ask for help or just comment

but of course the DNS must be correctly configured
which means A and MX and probably your ReverseDNS if you plan to have a good score and
