Setting up Mail app on Nextcloud for the first time

Hi, i am new to Nextcloud, and I cannot figure out how to set up the Mail app. I do have the Secure SSL/TLS Settings from my cPanel, but I cannot figure out where each setting goes. I’ve tried many different ways now, but I keep getting an error message.

Thanks to anyone who can point me in the right direction!

is this about mail-app? or rainloop? or internal emailing? [edit: yes about mail-app, apparently]

pls give some more informations about your set-up and environment. best: use app issue tracker and copy it’s output as a reply

fill in:
name - your name - eg. anne macaroni
mailaddress - e.g.
imap host - e.g. imap.yourmailprovider.tld (your mailprovider knows the details)
993 - is the port your imap uses… ssl/tls the securityoption (your mailprovider knows the details)
IMAP User - the useraccount you need to login to your mailbox (most probably but not always)
IMAP Password - the correct password that is needed to login to your mailbox with your useraccount

SMTP Host - e.g. smtp.yourmailprovider.tld (your mailprovider knows the details)
587 - is the port your outgoing mail uses (your mailprovider knows the details)
SMTP User s.a.
SMTP Passwort s.a.

I’m not sure of the answer. I have set up Nextcloud on our own Internet/website servers. Then I have been setting up the apps that come with Nextcloud, and this one is called Mail.

it IS mail… yes. was me being blond. sorry.

any idea how NC guesses the servername to use ?
or how to preset values in that setupdialog via template … (special setup) ?

if no manual info is provided, NC seems to strip the username … e.g. i can see in maillogs that the username “lala@foo.tld” will be stripped to “lala” to test connections & login
