E-mail Services

Primary mail server - @jinr.ru

To increase convenience and reliability of work with the central mail service @ jinr.ru a number of new services were developed:

  1. Anti-virus scanning of the mail flow. The software is implemented on the complex of anti-virus tools ClamAV. Antivirus monitors all the letters received and sent by the server mail.jinr.ru. If a virus, Trojan or Internet worm is found in the message, the mail delivery is blocked with notification of the sender, recipient and administrator of the mail server. The anti-virus database is updated daily and currently has over 1 million signatures of viruses/malicious links.

  2. Mail aliasing service. To unify the postal addresses of JINR staff, a system of postal aliases has been introduced. The user is given the opportunity to register a mail alias of the form <name>.<surname>@ jinr.ru with automatic mail forwarding to her/his real e-mail address on any JINR mail server. For example, the user Vasya Pupkin who has the e-mail address vasya@nu.jinr.ru now has the opportunity to receive letters to the address Vasya.Pupkin@jinr.ru.
    To register a mailing alias, you need to send a request to Need.LongName@jinr.ru with the desired alias and real e-mail address. An alias is ordered from the name of the family in the Latin transcription, up to a maximum of 64 characters. The use of symbols of the Latin alphabet, numbers and points is acceptable.

  3. Webmail. For quick access to mailbox, you can use the web-interface https://webmail.jinr.ru/. The interface is multilingual, including Russian, English, etc. Access via webmail is most preferred for users outside the JINR network. All connections to webmail are encrypted, hence safe. For daily work, we recommend that you use full-featured e-mail clients to receive and send e-mail messages, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook.

    Attention! To access this service from outside of JINR, it is necessary to use only encrypted (SSL) connections (use URLs of the form https://webmail.jinr.ru/);) for other requests from addresses outside the JINR range, it is closed; Addressing the form http://webmail.jinr.ru/ or webmail.jinr.ru - is not allowed. It is possible to address addresses inside JINR: http://webmail.jinr.ru/ or just webmail.jinr.ru - automatic redirection to a service using encrypted connections https://webmail.jinr.ru/

  4. Using the IMAP protocol. The mail protocol IMAP allows you to store the mailbox directly on the mail server. It is convenient for users who constantly read their mail from different computers. To configure the mail client for IMAP when creating an account in the mail client, select the IMAP protocol instead of the POP3 protocol.

  5. Protection from advertising, unwanted newsletters (SPAM). On the central mail server mail.jinr.ru an automatic system for determining SPAM is installed (for more details, see here). It should be noted that this service is intended only for users of mail.jinr.ru - those who have an address of the form xxxxx@jinr.ru. If you received an unwanted message that was not defined by the anti-SPAM system as SPAM, or vice versa - a useful message was marked as SPAM, you should send such a message in full volume with the headers ("forward as Attached" or "Forward As Attachment" By clicking the right mouse button in the message list in OutlookExpress) to spam@jinr.ru to further filter such messages or to nospam@jinr.ru - if the message was flagged incorrectly.

    Webmail users - how to send a spam message to the Network Service.
    - In the message list, select the message;
    - Click the down arrow next to the Forward button, select Forward as attachment;
    - For the address of the recipient, specify the address spam@jinr.ru or nospam@jinr.ru, respectively. Then click the Send Now button.

    Thus, you will send a spam message to the Network Service, saving all the service headers necessary to "train" the anti-spam system.

  6. Secure mail connections. To ensure the confidentiality of email account data and message content, it is strongly recommended to use the secure mode (SSL) of connections to the mail server. At JINR, SSL is encrypted with the Thawte publisher's license certificate. Below are the instructions for enabling encryption mode in different mail programs:

      Mozilla Thunderbird
      Tools menu, Account settings
      Outgoing mail server, select the server, click on Change
      In the Connection security select SSL/TLS, click OK
      In the list of accounts, go to Server Settings
      Similarly, in the Connection Security select SSL/TLS

      Microsoft Outlook 2010
      The File menu, Account Setup
      Select an email entry, click on Edit
      Click on Other settings

      In the Use the following type of encrypted connection drop-down menu, select TLS

      Microsoft Outlook Express
