You may configure email clients using Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to manage your emails and read messages in alternative email clients. Below are the configuration settings for faculty/staff with mailboxes on Office 365 and students with mailboxes on G Suite.
Note: IMAP is an email protocol used for retrieving and storing incoming mail sent over SMTP. If the user or application needs to send mail, they would use SMTP service. For more information about SMTP, see About SMTP at UConn.
