Setting Up Outlook

For general instructions on how to set up a client or device to receive your MBA Business Emails, or if you need general Outlook assistance, please refer to information found on Microsoft's Outlook Help Webpage.

 

Set Up an Outlook Email Client

For instructions specific to your desired email client (Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010, Entourage, etc) please follow the link to Email Setup Help Wizard and use the drop-down menus to select your settings.

 

Set Up Outlook on a Mobile Device

For instructions specific to your desired mobile device (iPhone, Blackberry, Android, etc) please follow the link to Mobile Phone Setup Wizard and use the drop-down menus to select your settings.

 

 

What else do I need to know?

  • If you don't know whether to use POP3 or IMAP4, consider using IMAP4 because it supports more features.
  • If you access your e-mail account online using the outlook.com Web site, you'll need the Windows Live ID that your administrator gave you and your password. The Windows Live ID account is also your primary e-mail address and includes the name of the domain, for example, john.dough@business.uconn.edu.
  • Most Internet e-mail programs and e-mail servers are set up to send e-mail through port 25. This usually works just fine. But, in some cases, sending mail through port 25 may result in an error, or sending mail may just not work reliably. In those cases, you can try to change the outgoing port setting (also known as the sending port or SMTP port) in your Internet e-mail program from 25 to 587. If you still can't send mail after trying both ports, contact the person who manages your e-mail account.

What is MBA Student Calendar?

MBA Student Calendar is an online tool designed primarily for a daily use of 1st and 2nd year MBA students. As it name says, MBA Student Calendar is an Microsoft Outlook e-calendar with a main goal of tracking and incorporating all MBA student related events in more efficient and practical manner.

Moreover, if MBA student or faculty member knows the event that would benefit MBA community and the event is not included in the MBA Student Calendar, we encourage him/her to communicates the event through email. Finally in order to use this tool, MBA students and other faculty members have to add MBA Student Calendar to their Microsoft Office Outlook.
