==Setting Up Exchange settings off campus==
 
When connecting Microsoft Outlook to the Exchange email service from home, a VPN connection is required to allow the program to access the Exchange E-mail server.
 
<i>Note:</i>The VPN connection is only necessary for the initial setup of Outlook, thereafter with the completion of the Outlook Anywhere settings, the VPN connection is unnecessary.
 
 
# Install and start the VPN client, additional information for the vpn can be found [[VPN Setup|here]].
 
# Follow the above instructions for Configuring Outlook 2007/2010.
 
#* If asked for a username name the syntax will be "uanet\<i>uanetid</i>"
