Description Caleb Cushing 2021-08-19 20:15:13 UTC
SUMMARY

I'd like to be able to have kmail autoconfigure email based on dns. I found this answer on ServerFault regarding appropriate settings. https://serverfault.com/a/172373/6852 there is also an _autodiscover endpoint, but that requires a web server to be set up. In case it is supposed to work, you can see my DNS here.



STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Settings
2. Add Account
3. Enter my.email@mydomain.com (in my case this is caleb.cushing@people-meeter.com)
4. Next
5. Next
6. Generic Imap Server (I suspect this shouldn't even show)
7. Next


OBSERVED RESULT

incoming and outgoing server is just the root domain, e.g. people-meeter.com

EXPECTED RESULT

imappro.zoho.com and smtppro.zoho.com

oh, side note, I'm not actually running KDE, I'm using Gnome 40, but using kmail in hopes that I like it better.

Hi,
Indeed we don't have this feature implemented yet.
I like it.
I will add it on my todo list.
