Handling email from Off Campus

Several ISPs block port 25(SMTP) from leaving their networks. They expect that you will only use their mail services. This, I believe, is intended to reduce spam.

Set up your out-going mail account to use Port 587

Setting up Outlook 2003 email accounts

Incoming mail settings (for Imap)

  • Incoming mail server: mail.cs.uwaterloo.ca
  • Logon information: CS username and password, check "Remember password"
  • Do not check "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)"
  • More Settings:
    • Outgoing Server tab:
      • Check "My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication"
      • Select "Use same settings as my incoming server"
      • If you're using POP, make sure "Use same settings as my incoming server" is set and not "Login to incoming server before sending mail" - this will not work!
        • If you are using IMAP this option "Login to incoming server before sending mail" will not appear
    • Advanced Tab
      • Incoming Server (IMAP): 993
      • Check "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)
      • Outgoing Server (SMTP): 587
      • Check "This server requires and encrypted connection (SSL)"
