You need to create it in the SMTP settings, then link it with your account in the main server settings.

In other words, under Edit -> Account Setttings, steps:
1. Choose Outgoing Server -> [Add] -> dialog "SMTP Server" -> enter the info for sending email out through your mail server -> [Ok]
2. Choose which email account to update -> dropdown "Outgoing Server" -> select the server that was added in step 1 -> [Ok]
3. Send a new message from that updated account, to prove the new server settings are correct. This is when IL will prompt to enter your password for logging in to the outgoing server.

I am quoting this post because I just want to say that under the setup I am using, I am not getting any issues with accessing my CalDAV server through Interlink's Lightning Calendar. I just changed an event on my calendar from my phone and it synced up properly. Interlink is having no issues for me. I use the Etesync service and pay them to host an encrypted CalDAV server, which requires a bridge on desktop to use with Interlink's Lightning Calendar. Both work fine for me. https://www.etesync.com/ And here is a link to the bridge: https://github.com/etesync/etesync-dav

Instructions on how to access a CalDAV server in Interlink using Etesync:
  • Install a CardDAV add-on such as Cardbook if you want to sync your contacts.
  • Open http://localhost:37358 in a browser, log in with your username and account password (not encryption password), and click on the link to your DAV collection to see a list of all the calendars, tasks lists, and address books in that collection
  • For each item in the collection that you want to sync, copy the [link] address and subscribe to that address in Interlink using File > New Calendar > On the Network > CalDav for calendars and tasks, or New Address Book > Remote > CardDav in Cardbook for address books
Thunderbird never added access to CardDAV instead of LDAP servers for address book support without requiring an outside add-on, so Interlink requires the same. I'm still using version 37.5 of Cardbook for that. Here are the instructions on how to run both though.

And See below for link on how to get Cardbook 37.5.

I use Etesync, which is an encrypted CardDav server. The only thing I have found to integrate CardDAV with Interlink is an older add-on called Cardbook, version 37.5 Specifically which was the last XUL version for Thunderbird before the v68 update. https://addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/th ... ns/?page=3

CardBook supports full integration of CardDAV servers to use with Interlink. But I hate using old, outdated add-ons. Please consider supporting me and posting on this thread urging the original developer of Cardbook to support Interlink Mail and News. Or, someone can graciously fork his older version for Thunderbird to be compatible with Interlink Mail and News:

https://gitlab.com/CardBook/CardBook/-/issues/891

For CalDAV, there is still good support in the Lightning add-on which has graciously been forked for use in Interlink.
