Email - Set-up Guide Entourage 2008 * WEB SERVICES EDITION *

This set-up guide will use information for Alpha Charlie as an example. Alpha Charlie has abc123@campus.usask.ca as an e-mail address and has alpha.charlie@usask.ca as an e-mail alias.

Please Note: An e-mail alias (e.g. firstname.lastname@usask.ca) is used when setting up Entourage 2008.  If you have not already created an e-mail alias for your nsid@campus.usask.ca e-mail address, please login to MyProfile to create one.

Prerequisite:

NOTE: You will need to download and install the WEB SERVICES EDITION update from Microsoft before you can use it as an e-mail program for campus.usask.ca
