Outlook 2007 and higher can automatically configure the correct settings for Microsoft Exchange from anywhere simply by entering your University email address and password during first run. Please see the Desktop Email Clients section for more info.
Compatible with all current browsers including Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari and Google Chrome.
Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync Address:
mail.aston.ac.uk with SSL enabled
Compatible with Windows Mobile phones running WM5/WM6, Apple iPhone and some Nokia/Sony smartphones. Please contact IT Services to purchase compatible devices.
If you are using Outlook, you do not need to configure IMAP
mail.aston.ac.uk with TLS or SSL. IMAP4 is supported but not recommended as you will not have access to your Exchange contacts and calendaring.
For outgoing mail (SMTP), use smtp.aston.ac.uk using TLS on port 587. This is authenticated using the same username and password.
