Mjolnir Server Documentation for IEEE SBE Eindhoven


Mjolnir is the server that hosts the IEEE Student Branch Eindhoven (SBE) folder, among other things. This wiki aims to document the essential aspects of Mjolnir, from email configuration to access permissions.

Email Configuration

Problem Statement

Emails sent from our IEEE SBE mailbox are landing in the spam folder or getting blocked. SPF/DKIM settings need to be configured.


To resolve this issue, you’ll need to create a ticket at bugs.thor.edu. After that, you can apply specific DNS records suggested by the CoCo (Computer Committee).

Required DNS Records:

  • _dmarc TXT: v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; rua=mailto:dmarc@thor.edu; ruf=mailto:dmarc@thor.edu; pct=100; ri=86400; fo=1; adkim=r; aspf=r;
  • dkim2018._domainkey TXT: dkim2018._domainkey.thor.edu.

Note: Make sure to consult Marco (CoCo’s mail expert) before applying these settings.

Committee Folders & Permissions

Access to Mjolnir

Some committees like Line Follower and External Relations can access Mjolnir but not their specific folders. The permissions for these folders can only be set by the CoCo team. Contact the Thor Board to request these permissions.

Existing Permission Groups

  • ieeesbeshare: Access to share and posters folder.
  • ieeesbe: Access to Committees, General, Latex, Misc, Personal, Photos, To sort, and Committees/WIE folders.
  • ieeesbeboard: Access to the Board folder and all Committees subfolders.
  • ieeesbelectures: Access to the ExternalRelations folder in Committees.
  • ieeesbelinefollowers: Access to the LineFollower folder in Committees.

Hosting Fee

Due to the complexity of setting up and maintaining email services, the CoCo suggests raising the hosting fee from €10 to €20 per month. However, a one-time payment of €100 for initial setup and a slight increase to €12 monthly for ongoing services can be negotiated.


For further queries, you can create a ticket on bugs.thor.edu or consult Marco for specific issues. Let’s ensure that the setup is consistent and secure to maintain our daily operations effectively.

Note: All settings, rules, and regulations are subject to CoCo’s approval and management. If you’re interested in learning more about hosting and server management, consider joining the CoCo team.
