Using other programs to get your mail (e.g. Apple Mail, mail on smartphones etc.)

Use your program’s help to set up a new account or connection to STU’s mail. You will need to give your mail program some information about STU’s mail system. In most cases all you will need to provide are the name of the mail server, the fact it is an Exchange type server, and your username and password. Most modern programs will auto-discover additional settings.

Server type: Exchange
Server: webmail.stu.ca
Username or Account name: This will usually be your full email address, in some cases it’s just the part before the “@“ sign.
Password: Your email password

In rare cases or for older software you may need to provide additional information, if this is the case the following may be useful:

Incoming:
Connection type/Protocol: IMAP
Server: webmail.stu.ca
SSL: YES
port: 993

Outgoing:
server: webmail.stu.ca
ssl: YES
port: 587
