Below are the instructions to add a UWO E-mail Account to your email program. You must have a UWO E-mail Account assigned to you first by ITS before you can setup this account. If you are using the Office 365 web client at myoffice.uwo.ca, you do not need to follow these instructions.
While Thunderbird works with Office 365 email, it is not compatible with the calendar. We do not recommend that you use Thunderbird.
When you run Thunderbird for the first time, it will prompt you to create a new email address. Choose Skip this and use my existing email.
Next you will be prompted to setup your email account. Enter your Name, Email and Password.
On the next window, choose Manual config.
Complete the settings as follows:
Incoming: IMAP; Server hostname: outlook.office365.com; Port: 993; SSL: SSL/TLS; Authentication: Normal password
Outgoing: SMTP; Server hostname: smtp.office365.com; Port: 587; SSL: STARTTLS; Authentication: Normal password
Thunderbird will launch in your email.
For other email setups, including Mac and the legacy Convergence email, see the ITS website. The legacy Convergence email is still used for faculty who opted to delay their migration to the Office 365 system, and for most non-person accounts.
