Troubleshooting

What is the server name of my server?

SkyConnect Trial Account User

If you are evaluating the mithiskyconnect.com domain the URL or server name used for accessing any application (POP, IMAP, SMTP, LDAP, XMPP, CalDAV) is mail.mithiskyconnect.com

Hosted Users

For all hosted users the URL or server name is <domain>.mithiskyconnect.com .

In Premise Users

Please contact administrator to find out the exact URL.

Can I use IP address of the server instead of server name URL?

It is not recommended to use IP address of the server. As IP addresses are not permanent and may change in future.

So, please contact to the administrator if you do not know the URL of your server.

Unable to configure your account? Connection Error?

Are you connecting to the server over SSL?

1. You must have SSL certificate installed/enabled on your server.

2. By default, CalDAV connects to the server over SSL using the port number 443.
If it is not open for connection and blocked in the Firewall, connection error occurs and configuration fails.

Please contact your admin to check if there is not a port issue.

Are you connecting to the server without using SSL?

By default, for plain connection that is without using SSL CalDAV uses the port number 80.
If it is not open for connection and blocked in the Firewall, connection error occurs and configuration fails.

Please contact your admin to check if there is not a port issue.
