Kolab.org is a Free Software Groupware solution closely connected to KDE. This page describes how to set up a MyKolab account with Kontact, but it works with any other Kolab Server as well.

Set up a Kolab Account

In order to add a new account to your Kontact, please open the Account Assistant and select "Kolab Groupware Server" as the account type. Fill out the Personal Settings while making sure that the Server Address is set to imap.mykolab.com and the Kolab Version to v3.

IMAP Configuration

If you followed the above instructions using the Account Assistant, your IMAP account should already have been set up properly. However, you can verify your settings based on the screenshots below. In order to do so, please go to "Settings" in the menu bar and choose "Configure Kontact". Then go to "KMail" and "Accounts".

Please make sure that the IMAP Server is imap.mykolab.com and that it uses port 143 with STARTTLS encryption. Please also use your full and primary MyKolab.com address such as [email protected] as a username.


SMTP Configuration

Unfortunately, the SMTP settings need to be corrected after account setup. In order to do so, please go to "Settings" in the menu bar and choose "Configure Kontact". Then go to "KMail", "Accounts" and then click on the "Sending" tab. The server should be smtp.mykolab.com with port 587 and TLS encryption. Please use your full and primary MyKolab.com address such as [email protected] as a username and also see the screenshots below.
