Reading your Exchange email

You can read your Exchange email with most popular email clients. However, for full use of calendars, scheduling, and other features, use Outlook; other clients will vary in functionality.

Important:
The Microsoft Outlook mobile app does not currently meet IU security standards, and is therefore blocked from the Exchange servers at IU. See Why doesn't the Microsoft Outlook mobile app work with IU Exchange accounts?

For configuration instructions, click the appropriate link:

Full-featured clients
Windows Outlook 2013, 2010, 2007

IMAP clients
Windows
IMAP connections permit you to read your Exchange email, but with few or no additional features. While this is not an ideal solution if you wish to access these features, IMAP setup is useful if all you need is email.

Note: Mac OS X (10.6 and later) does give access to a basic set of Exchange features through Mail, Contacts, and iCal; however, its implementation of Exchange is still limited with respect to the needs of advanced users.
