In most cases, the U of S Email and Calendar service supports the same email client software that you are using to connect to the old U of S Email service. However, you will need to reconfigure your email client software to connect to the new service. The following email clients that worked with the old U of S Email service are still supported:
Please refer to the set-up guides for Windows clients or set-up guides for Macintosh clients to reconfigure your email client to use the U of S Email and Calendar service. Other email clients that support IMAP or Exchange MAPI connections should also work.
The following email clients are NOT supported with the new U of S Email and Calendar service:
The U of S Email and Calendar service integrates email, calendaring, tasks, and address book into one service. While all of the supported email clients listed above can access the email, to be able to access all of the functionality provided by the service, you need to use a client that supports Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. You may want to take this opportunity to switch to an email client that supports all of these new features. Here are some recommendations for you to consider:
The U of S Email and Calendar service works great with:
All of these devices support both email, calendaring, and accessing the address list for the U of S Email and Calendar service. Please, refer to the setup guides for mobile devices or contact the ICT Help Desk for more information.
Another great option if you are mobile or travel is to use the Outlook Web App (OWA) as your email client.
OWA is Microsoft's web based client provided with Exchange Server 2010 so it supports the features of the U of S Email and Calendar service well. OWA is fully supported on most current web browsers including Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer.
Laptops, notebooks, and netbooks with email client software installed can also make great mobile clients. Refer to the Desktop Access section below for our recommendations.
While Outlook Web App (OWA) provides all of the functionality that most people will need, if you have a desktop or portable Windows or Macintosh computer, you may want to use client software installed on your computer to access even more features.
For Windows computers, Microsoft Outlook 2010 is recommended both by Microsoft and by ICT. Outlook offers the following features:
For Macintosh computers, there are two recommended solutions.
Microsoft Outlook 2011 for Macintosh offers the same features as described for Outlook 2010 above except that there is no Viewmail add-on available for the Macintosh platform.
Apple Mail and iCalendar software work together to offer email and calendaring using the U of S Email and Calendar service. Apple Mail and iCalendar are functionally similar to the supported mobile devices listed in the Mobile Access section above.
