IMAP & POP Settings for Office 365

If instructions aren't listed for the program you're using, the following information may help you set up your email.

  • Email address: This is your full email address (for example, tony@contoso.com).

  • User name: Your user name is your full email address (for example, tony@contoso.com).

  • Password: This is the password for your email account.

  • Incoming mail server settings: These are your incoming (POP3 or IMAP4) server settings.

    • If you’re connecting to your Office 365 email, use the following settings.

 

Server name

Port

Encryption method

POP3

outlook.office365.com

995

Secure Socket Layer (SSL)

IMAP4

outlook.office365.com

993

SSL

  • Outgoing mail server settings: This is your Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) server name.

    • If you’re connecting to your Office 365 email, use the following settings.

 

Server name

Port

Encryption method

SMTP

smtp.office365.com

587

Transport Layer Security (TLS)


Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you will not be able to send mail through your client using your FAU address.

If you are having trouble sending mail but have confirmed that encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.


Some clients may support TLS over SSL; this is not a concern because all traffic over the connection will be secured.
