Users



Description

The user represents a physical person (YOU). This is also your login to access the panel and all the services provided by TuxFamily. Creating an user account automatically creates an message inbox at tuxfamily.org and a jabber ID at tuxfamily.org. (the jabber ID is only activated for active users who have at least one project)

Dependences

A working PC with an internet connection and some common sense ;)

Creation

To create your user, use the subscribe link on the Panel and fill in the required fields. Please do provide accurate information in the personal information section.

TuxFamily will NEVER use your personal information for commercial purposes !

Once your account has been created, you should receive an email containing your password. Welcome to TuxFamily!

Registration Tips

  • use only lowercase letters and numbers in the user name field.
  • do NOT create an account for your group! you have to create an account for each user and then create a group
  • do not use special/non english characters in any field(€, æ, ï, ç, ø and ñ won't work...)
  • do not use a tuxfamily email address in the email field or, we won't be able to contact you if the mailing platform is down...
  • again, please use a valid email address. As stated, it will not be given to third parties. Also, should the provided email address not be valid, you will not be able to recover forgotten passwords and such.
    • TuxFamily.org does not send large volumes of email. You're not going to get a daily TuxFamily newsletter.
    • TuxFamily.org won't be able to inform you of important changes if your email address is incorrect.

Specific cases

If you already have a dummy account or an account with a bad name, please delete it and create a new one from scratch.

Moderation

There is no moderation on user registration.

How to manage it? (panel)

There is not much that's vital here... just your user Preferences and personal information etc...

User email

As a TuxFamily member, you're given an email address @tuxfamily.org if one of your projects is validated by the administrator team.

In the user preferences section, you can define how those mails are routed (local mailbox or redirection). Your email password is the same as your panel password.

Warning! Once your mailbox has been created, you have to activate it by sending an email to it

You have two options:

  • Redirecting all the mails to an other existing account (youruser@yourprovider.com/net/org)
  • creating a real mailbox @tuxfamily.org

If you have this error : Connection dropped by IMAP server, you have to send a mail to activate it as said below.

How to use it

  • pop.tuxfamily.org,
  • pops.tuxfamily.org (ssl),
  • imap.tuxfamily.org,
  • imaps.tuxfamily.org (ssl)

Outgoing emails : TuxFamily.org won't provide a smtp server, so you have to use your ISP's smtp server to send emails.

Other information

Just use the default options of your mail client to use the ssl server (imaps.tuxfamily.org)

How to delete it

You can delete your account by using the "delete" button on the panel in your user section.
