Email Client Instructions
Unsupported Email Clients
Please note that while you can connect to either the IMAP or Exchange servers from nearly an endless supply of email clients for operating systems including, but in no way limited to: Apple Iphones, Linux, OSX, Windows, Solaris... etc
The University of Akron ONLY supports Outlook and Outlook Express on the windows platform. As such, Although ZipSupport MAY be able to help you with your other programs or OSs, you will be on your own for diagnosing unsupported clients.
All University owned computers runnings Windows should use Outlook as their Email Client. Other clients may not be permitted to send outgoing mail messages on these computers.
