Read 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 the Microsoft Outlook mobile app doesn't work with IU Exchange and Google at IU accounts.

Note:
On January 12, 2016, Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer versions prior to version 11. UITS strongly recommends that you upgrade to a new operating system if your current system does not support Internet Explorer 11.
IMAP clients
Windows
Important:
You can configure Microsoft Outlook to read your IU Exchange mail using IMAP. However, UITS recommends not doing so, as it will limit the functionality of Outlook.

Through Exchange Web Services, Mac OS X 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.

Linux Mozilla Thunderbird
