As a Member you have an e-mail-account in our system. You do not have to use this account to receive our mails - in the Usersuite, you can forward the mails to your existant private address.

Your mail is of the form:

  • Gerokstraße: <username>@wh17.tu-dresden.de
  • Hochschulstraße: <username>@wh12.tu-dresden.de
  • Borsbergstraße, Wundtstraße, Zellescher Weg and Zeunerstraße: <username>@wh2.tu-dresden.de

You recieved your initial password together with your copy of your membership application. You can always change it with the usersuite.

Important announcements and notifications regarding your account (high traffic, overdue payment) are sent via e-mail. We strongly recommend you to check your mails regularly or to setup an address for forwarding, if you do not intend to use your e-mail account with us.

Why You should use the AG DSN e-mail-account in addition

Your mails and data of this e-mail-account are stored on servers located in dormitories in Dresden.

In contrast to big American or German providers, we do not work based on profit, which is why we try keeping

Receive e-mails

Webmail

The simplest way to receive your mail is using the webmailer we provide:

Mailclient

A better way of course is the usage of a mail client, as it provides more functionality to organize and encrypt your data.

In our download-section you can download such programs, like for example Thunderbird. In most Linux-distributions, Thunderbird is already installed or can be installed using a packagemanager.

Anyway, every other mail program should work in a similiar way.

First of all you have to add an Account. In Thunderbird: File > New > Mail Account ...

Provide your personal data, your e-mail-address <username>@whX.tu-dresden.de and your password.

Now, go to Manual Config. There, type in the following serversettings.

Gerokstraße

  Hostname Protocol (port) SSL Authentication
Incoming mail.wh17.tu-dresden.de POP3(110) normal, password
Incoming mail.wh17.tu-dresden.de IMAP(993) SSL/TLS normal, password
Outgoing mail.wh17.tu-dresden.de SMTP(25) STARTLS normal, password

Hochschulstraße

  Hostname Protocol (port) SSL Authentication
Incoming mail.wh12.tu-dresden.de POP3 (110) STARTTLS normal, password
Incoming mail.wh12.tu-dresden.de IMAP (143) STARTTLS normal, password
Outgoing mail.wh12.tu-dresden.de SMTP (587) STARTTLS normal, password

Borsbergstraße, Wundtstraße, Zellescher Weg and Zeunerstraße

  Hostname Protocol (port) SSL Authentication
Incoming mail.wh2.tu-dresden.de IMAP(993) SSL/TLS normal, password
Incoming mail.wh2.tu-dresden.de POP3(995) SSL/TLS normal, password
Outgoing mail.wh2.tu-dresden.de SMTP(587) STARTTLS normal, password

(Standard) IMAP keeps all e-mails on the server. Because of this you can use multiple e-mail-programs, and even multiple devices plus the web mailer. POP3 check the mails only once and then deletes them after this from the server. It's not possible to use multiple e-mail-programs.

Forward e-mails

You can simply setup an e-mail-forward with the usersuite. Each e-mail send to <username>@whX.tu-dresden.de will be automatically forwarded to this e-mail.
