e-mail clients

Connecting from a desktop email client, like Outlook (PC) or Entourage EWS (Mac) is a good idea if you consistently work from the same computer. In addition to connections with Outlook, OU IT enables POP and IMAP connections for those wishing to connect using their preferred client.

OU IT has provided step by step instructions below for most major email clients (both PC and Mac). If you have trouble re-configuring your client, please contact our Service Desk at (405) 325-HELP or support.ou.edu.
