Provider Overview


#1

The idea of this thread is to collect information about providers working with Delta Chat.

  • Is it just me …? If you have problems with a given provider, you can check if the provider works for other users - and which preparations may be needed to get the provider working with Delta Chat.

  • If you’ve figured out how to use your provider with Delta Chat - or even if just works -, it would be great if you drop a few lines about your provider here, suggested format:

    Name:          PROVIDER-NAME
    State:         OK on YEAR-MONTH
    Preparations:  what must be done eg. in the provider's web frontend
    Login:         credentials that must be typed into the Delta Chat app
    Comments:      everything else that might be helpful
    
  • For updates: the next post is a “wiki” that anyone can edit - just use the “edit” link at the end of the post.

We’ll see how this works, it’s just an experiment :slight_smile:

#6

i suggest to rather put this info to a page https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-pages and maybe even link to it.


#7

good idea - i’ve added a link to https://delta.chat/en/help#miscellaneous


#8

whjat i mean is that we create a version-tracked “provider-overview” page in deltachat-pages repo.


#9

ahh, i see. however, this might be a bigger hurdle for users just “using” the app. using this forum is simple, using github is more complicated.
wrt: version tracking: this is also available here (use the green marker atop of the post)
maybe we can just see how this works out and can do different things later :slight_smile:
