Last Updated 6 years ago

If you are updating your Apple Mail, the information below will not work, please proceed to Apple Mail Setup Instructions.

An error has been spotted on the Connect FAQ generic settings page, and you should use the new server settings for your email software client here instead :     

Therefore, the correct server settings are following:

incoming mail server type:


incoming mail server name:

incoming mail server port:


use secure connection (SSL/TLS):

yes / "normal password"


 your UCSBNetID
(DO put at the end!)

outgoing mail server name:

outgoing mail server port:


use secure connection (TLS/SSL):


outgoing mail server requires authentication

yes / "normal password"



Please Wait!
