GT E-MAIL MIGRATION NOTICE

Georgia Tech is migrating to Microsoft Office 365 (o365).  The College of Computing migrated November 13, 2015.  Refer to the following FAQ for more details and links the Georgia Tech o365 Migration site:

What is the GT e-mail, calendar, and contacts transition to Office 365 all about?

 

Office 365

The campus provides a Microsoft Office 365 cloud-based email solution to most Institute faculty, staff, and students.  Office 365 provides access to email, calendar, and contacts through a variety of PC and Apple clients, a rich web client, and mobile devices.
 
The configuration options for Office 365 clients are below:
METHOD SOFTWARE REQUIRED BASIC SETUP
RPC over https

The Outlook app for iOS and Android is blocked.

  • Exchange Server = outlook.office365.com
  • Logon network security = Anonymous Authentication
  • Connection - Exchange over the Internet / Outlook Anywhere - Connect to Exchange Mailbox using HTTP
  • Mutually authenticate the session when connecting with SSL.
  • Proxy server for Exchange = outlook.office365.com
  • Principal name for proxy server = msstd:outlook.com
  • Proxy authentication setting = Basic Authentication
IMAP
  • Incoming Mail Server (IMAP) - outlook.office365.com (SSL, port 993 or 995)
  • Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.office365.com (TLS, port 587)

* Please note that pine is not supported and that these instructions have not been tested.  These instructions are provided as a courtesy to our customers.  Office 365 settings are at the bottom of the page. *

OWA
  • Modern web browser
Outlook Web App works best under Internet Explorer 10+, Firefox 3+, Chrome 3+, and Safari 3+, which support advanced features (e.g. drag and drop). Other browsers (e.g. Opera, IE 8, etc.) can access OWA but with a reduced feature set:  https://mail.gatech.edu

 

Authenticated SMTP

TSO provides an authenticated SMTP service that is restricted to CoC faculty and staff.  This service is intended only for those faculty and staff who have opted out of Office 365 and wish to send as their gatech.edu email address (those opted into Office 365 or Store and Forward should use the Office 365 SMTP settings shown above).  As of June 3, 2016, the service is available but is considered to be in testing and is subject to change.  Howto's are forthcoming.  Below are the configuration parameters that should work with most modern email clients (Thunderbird*, Outlook, Mac Mail, etc.):
 

Server Name: sccl.cc.gatech.edu

Port: 465

User Name: GTUsername

Password:  GT password

Authentication method: Normal password

Connection Security: STARTTLS

*There is a known issue with the most recent build of Thunderbird at the time of this writing (June 3, 2016) that will ignore any SMTP settings after the first entry.
