Office 365- Exchange/Outlook

This page, Setups has links on how to set up some of the more common e-mail clients, as well as Mozilla Thunderbird. As of now we have not updated the E-mail section of our wiki to reflect the migration as we want to wait until everything is done and ready to go so that we can provide the most thorough and accurate instructions.

For most e-mail clients just entering your FULL e-mail address (ie. and not just zippy), along with your password will allow your authentication.

NOTE: Thunderbird does not officially support the Exchange protocol, and is not actively maintained by the Mozilla Foundation. It is recommended that user choose either MS Outlook (is free for fac/staff through Office 365) and can be downloaded here, or Apple Mail if using a Mac.
