General IMAP Setup

UWSP no longer allows POP access to its mail servers. Please see the general instructions below for setting up IMAP access.

UWSP IMAP Mail Servers
Incoming Mail Server: email.uwsp.edu
Outgoing Mail Server: email.uwsp.edu

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Port: 993 with SSL
Outgoing Mail Port: 587 with TLS (or SSL if TLS is not available as an option)

Change polling times to 30 minutes or higher, or turn polling off altogether.*

Use Authentication on your outgoing mail server (use the same credentials as your incoming mail server) (If you are using Mozilla's Thunderbird client or Outlook 2007 - you must use TLS and not SSL when configuring your secure connection.)

*The reason that we ask you to do this as a courtesy to Information Technology, because if you poll more often, the email server logs fill up with polling messages.
