E-mail configuration

Please find below the basic parameters for configuring the e-mail client (Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird etc.) installed on your computer.

Configuration of the incoming mail server for reading messages

IMAP/S Mode

Incoming mail server = mailserver.unimi.it
Port = 993
Connection security = SSL/TLS
UserName = the e-mail address assigned by student registrars
Password = initially assigned by student registrars and subsequently changed by the user through the Change password procedure.

The e-mail traffic and credentials, including your password, exchanged between the University mail server and your computer are encrypted and cannot be intercepted.

Configuration of the outgoing mail server for sending messages

SMTP AUTH/S Mode

SMTP Server = smtp.unimi.it
Port = 465
Connection security = SSL/TLS
UserName = the e-mail address assigned by student registrars
Password = initially assigned by student registrars and subsequently changed by the user through the Change password procedure.

This mode allows you to send e-mails through the University service without using the SMTP server of your internet provider.

The e-mail traffic and credentials, including your password, exchanged between the University mail server and your computer are encrypted and cannot be intercepted.
