Berkshire Scouts Mail Server Info
If your email is hosted by Berkshire Scouts, but not a @berkshirecouts.org.uk address, then the following settings apply but for help you should contact the maintainer of your Group/District's website, rather than the County IT Team.
Username: full email address (e.g. email@example.com)
Password: a randomly generated one is given to you when the account is created - if forgotten it can be reset by the IT Team
- Incoming Server (POP): pop.berkshirescouts.org.uk, Port 995 SSL. Unencrypted connections are no longer supported - if this poses you a problem then please get in touch with the support team via the helpdesk.
- Incoming Server (IMAP): imap.berkshirescouts.org.uk, Port 993 SSL. Unencrypted connections are no longer supported - if this poses you a problem then please get in touch with the support team via the helpdesk.
- Outgoing Server (SMTP): smtp.berkshirescouts.org.uk, Port 587 TLS (If TLS doesn't work, try STARTTLS if it's an option - firstly on port 587, secondly on port 25. Unencrypted connections are available on port 25 but are not recommended).
All our servers require login with a username and password. The settings for this are different for each mail client - you should first consult a search engine, like Google, to try and find your settings; however if this fails then open a ticket and the IT Team will endeavour to assist you.
There is a webmail interface located at https://baden.berkshirescouts.org.uk/roundcube - once logged in you may also use the settings panel to change your password.
It's possible to set autoresponders through the webmail interface - instructions can be found here.
