If your preferred e-mail client does not support Microsoft Exchange, you can configure it to use the POP or IMAP protocols. However, some features, such as calendaring, will not be available.
Note: Though you can use other IMAP and POP clients, ITS strongly recommends that you use Microsoft Outlook.
E-mail programs need the name of the server from which they receive messages (POP or IMAP server) and the name of the server that sends messages (SMTP server).
- POP or IMAP name: "outlook.office365.com"
- SMTP name: "smtp.office365.com"
To connect using POP or IMAP, you will need to log in with your UTEID@austin.utexas.edu and your UT EID password. The outgoing, or SMTP server, should be set to use the same credentials as your incoming server.
IMAP Password Authentication
If you are using the IMAP configuration for Exchange, make sure to use Password authentication only. Other forms of authentication, such as NTLM, MD5, or Kerberos are not supported.
- IMAP: "993" (SSL required)
- POP: "995" (SSL required)
- SMTP: "587" (TLS required, not SSL)
