Configuring Email Clients
There are two options for configuring your mail client. You can either look through our supported list of programs or you can use our server connection settings and configure the client appropriately.
Linux / Unix
If your settings are not listed above, the following settings can be used in your mail client. See the appropriate help documentation for your mail client to find out how to enter this information.
Incoming mail (IMAP)
- Hostname: imap.onid.oregonstate.edu
- SSL or TLS enabled
- Port (if using TLS, which is recommended): 143
- Port (if using SSL): 993
If you see an option asking if you want to use TLS, it is recommended that you choose that option.
Outgoing mail (SMTP)
- Hostname: mail.oregonstate.edu
- TLS or STARTTLS
- Port: 587
- ONID authentication is Required
Please note that you may be prompted for a username and password when sending mail. The username and password are your ONID username and password. Many mail clients allow you to save these credentials so you are not prompted for them every time you send mail. Additionally, note that if you change your ONID password, you will be asked to re-enter your credentials.
