Managing Central Staff Email Using IMAP
The central mail service offers the use of the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) in which all mail, both new and saved, remains on the server and is not downloaded to a local PC as in the older POP based system. The obvious advantage of this is that all mail folders are accessible from whichever location the user chooses to access mail. Read this account for examples of how an IMAP system can be used.
For Instructions on how to set-up and configure mail clients such as Thunderbird and Microsoft Outlook, see Using The Central Staff Email Service.
The following links give some basic instructions on how to use the popular email clients with IMAP.
There are several other utilities available to help you manage your email account:
The IMAP Account Management utility allows you to set up message filtering, forwarding and vacation addresses and will display how much space you have left on the mail server.
The Access Control Management utility (ACLTool) enables you to give other users varying degrees of access to your IMAP folders.
The Quota Tool will allow you to check and increase your space quota on the mail server.
The Password change form allows you to change your password. Note that this will also affect your log in through the central IDcheck system used for other College systems.
