Setup Mail

Description:

These instructions are for the Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" and newer.

Mail.app is not supported on 10.5 "Leopard" or 10.4 "Tiger".  On those versions of the Mac OS X, we recommend that clients use Entourage as part of Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac.

How to Use:

  1. Open Mail and fill out the details of the Welcome dialog box. Click Continue when you are ready. Email Address and password
  2. Select Exchange 2007 from the Account Type drop down menu. Service Selection
  3. Fill in the remainder of the details using the server address of owa.uta.edu and your NetID and password as normal. Leave the Address Book and iCal check boxes enabled so that accounts will be automatically created for those programs. Click Continue when ready. Server Settings
  4. Verify your details and make corrections by clicking the Go Back button. When you are ready, click Create. Your e-mail will be downloaded in the next few minutes and you can check your appointments in iCal and contacts from Address Book which are both located in the Applications folder on your computer. Success!
