Mail server info of National Center for Biological Sciences (NCBS) Bangalore

If you are a mutt user like me and working at NCBS Bangalore, you need to setup your account in mutt as following. Unfortunately, this information is not available on NCBS intranet.


set from="REAL_NAME "
set from="USER NAME "
set hostname="imaps://imap.ncbs.res.in"
set folder="imaps://imap.ncbs.res.in"
set record="+INBOX.Sent"
set imap_user="NCBS_USER"
set imap_pass="NCBS_PASS"
set postponed="=Drafts"
set spoolfile="+INBOX"
set signature="sign.txt"
set smtp_url="smtp://NCBS_USER@mailsvr.ncbs.res.in" smtp_pass="$NCBS_PASS"
set realname="$REAL_NAME"

In short incoming server is imap.ncbs.res.in and outgoing server is mailsvr.ncbs.res.in. Use default ports.

To get smtp server information, you can always use


msmtp -v --host=mailsvr.ncbs.res.in --serverinfo --tls=on --tls-certcheck=off --port 25
