E-mail Server Information

E-mail Server Information

 

If you are setting up an e-mail client (Outlook, Thunderbird, etc.) on your computer, it is vital that you know the server that you are connecting to. Below is a list of mail servers and the name for each:

 

Settings for e-mail Client Configuration
Faculty/Staff (Exchange)  
Incoming/Outgoing mailbox.brocku.ca
   
Faculty/Staff (Spartan)  
Incoming mail server (IMAP) spartan.ac.brocku.ca
Incoming IMAP server port number (TLS) 143
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) smtp.brocku.ca
Outgoing SMTP server port number (TLS) 587
   
Students (Badger)  
Incoming mail server (IMAP) badger.ac.brocku.ca
Incoming IMAP server port number (TLS) 143
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) smtp.brocku.ca
Outgoing SMTP server port number (TLS) 587

PLEASE NOTE: Some software can’t handle TLS and will require ports 993 (IMAP) and 465 (SMTP).  For Outlook 2011 use SSL and port 993 for incoming; and use SSL and port 587 for outgoing.
