Settings for reading your Oamk email at home (or with your smartphone)

Keywords: , , , ,

You can read your e-mail at your own computer using Outlook or any other email programme (e.g. Mozilla Thunderbird) using the common protocol called IMAP. If you’re using a smartphone for your e-mail, it is easiest to use the built-in e-mail application that allows you to add an Exchange account. Since adjusting the settings isn’t identical in all the applications and mobile devices, we can’t unfortunately provide detailed instructions for your phone, but rather just the information you need to get your e-mail to work. NB. You as your user name, you should give your whole e-mail address, e.g. (where the username is of course your own).

1)      E-mail settings for mobile devices or Outlook

Most mobile devices have a mail application (with an option to add an Exchange account) already installed. By default both Outlook and Mail for Exchange try to find the server information automatically after inputting the email address. If retrieving the settings doesn’t work automatically, you need to do it manually.

Your user name is your email address. (E.g.

Secured log in: yes
Port: 443

2)      IMAP settings

Your user name is your email address. (E.g.

Incoming mail server (IMAP):
–          Requires SSL
–          Port 993

Outgoing mail server (SMTP):
–          Requires TLS
–          Port 587
