Using Microsoft Outlook 2003 with UVM's central email system.

Microsoft Outlook is not among the recommended email clients supported by CIT. It does, however, offer support for connecting to IMAP and LDAP services, and I use it regularly to access my UVM email (along with Pine and Thunderbird).

I offer the following description of the the way I configure Outlook 2003 to help folks who really want to use Outlook.

  1. Basic Configuration
  2. Subscribing to folders
  3. Configuring the online directory
  4. Setting options
    1. Setting the interval for send/receive
    2. Set the default mail format
    3. Set the startup folder
  5. Saving outgoing mail to the server
  6. Deleting and purging
  7. Address auto-complete and searching
