To access your IU Exchange account:

  1. Open System Preferences. It will normally be in the Dock, but you can also select it from the Apple menu.
  2. From the View menu in System Preferences, select Internet Accounts.
  3. In the preference window, click Exchange.
  4. In the sheet that appears, enter your name in the "Name:" field. In the "Email address:" field, enter your primary IU email address; see Your IU email address. Next to "Password:", enter your IU passphrase.
  5. Click Sign In.
  6. The sheet may reappear with a "Username:" field. Enter your IU username and click Sign In.
  7. In the next window, you will have the option of choosing which application to configure. They will all be selected by default. Click Done or Add Account to complete your account setup.
When mail is deleted from macOS Mail, the messages go to the Trash folder as usual. However, messages deleted from this folder do not go to the Exchange retention area, and they are not recoverable. Additionally, mail that is hard-deleted via Option-Delete skips the Trash folder and also does not go into the retention area.
