IMAP allows for a mail client, such as Outlook Express, to synchronize mail messages and folders on a mail server. IMAP connection is not supported by OIT and the information on this page is provided for your convenience only. Outlook Web Access (OWA), Microsoft Outlook and MS Entourage with direct Exchange connection configuration are the only officially supported and approved e-mail access methods. The configuration and use of unsupported e-mail clients will be the sole responsibility of the user.

IMAP applies only to Faculty/Staff. Student e-mail is handled through MavMail.
