Configuring E-mail Clients for Student E-mail

Some students like to access Richland e-mail on their phones or from home using Outlook, Eudora, Thunderbird, etc., without having to use the web-based interface. Following are basic directions to configure mobile devices and personal computers.

General Configuration Information for Student E-mail (mobile devices & computers)

This information will work for most IMAP enabled phones and mobile devices and is also the basic information needed for setting up e-mail on your computer.

Wherever it refers to your E-mail Address, you should use your NetID@richland.edu. For example, maildemo@richland.edu or jdjones@richland.edu

Wherever it refers to your username or account name, you should use your NetID without the @richland.edu. For example maildemo or jdjones.

The incoming server (POP3 or IMAP) and outgoing server (SMTP) servers are both zimbra.richland.edu.

Outgoing e-mail (SMTP) will require authentication and secure connections (SSL). The login information is the same as your user information. Use your NetID without the @richland.edu. The SMTP port should be port 465.

Incoming IMAP connections require secure connections (SSL) on port 993.

Incoming POP3 connections require secure connections (SSL) on port 995
