If You're a PC

Note:  W&M faculty and staff mailboxes are moving to Microsoft Office 365.  The move will be complete by the end of the 2017 calendar year, and this website will be updated at that time.  Please see our Office 365 project page for information related to the new mail system.  Access email on Office 365 at webmail.wm.edu.

Directions for how to set up Exchange on your computer's Outlook application.

Do you keep seeing a pop-up asking you to login again? You can remove this message from your desktop (Outlook 2007 (pdf) or Outlook 2010 (pdf)) and your laptop (Outlook 2007 (pdf) or Outlook 2010 (pdf)).

Outlook Web Apps (OWA)

You may prefer to use OWA, a web-based version of Outlook email and calendar you can access anywhere with an Internet connection. To login to OWA, enter your WMuserid and password here.

Other Email Program Setup

We haven't fully tested other non-standard email/calendar programs but you are more than welcome to setup a client other than Outlook. Just make sure you are aware of the following parameters if you decide to do so:

  • IMAP setting to Exchange Server
  • Incoming mail: owa.wm.edu; port 993 using SSL
  • Outgoing mail: smtp.wm.edu; 587 using STARTTLS
