How do I read my e-mail from home?

Last updated: July 31st, 2013 04:53 PM

CSSD provides mail servers for IMAP, SMTP and Exchange. You will need to configure your mail reader on your home PC to make use of one of these servers:

IMAP: imap.pitt.edu
SMTP: smtp.pitt.edu
Exchange: mail.pitt.edu
Thunderbird, Outlook and Windows Live Mail are IMAP-compliant mail readers. To configure your mail reader, you should only need to specify the server you would like to use, your department login name, and your password. Select the option to use the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for IMAP, POP and SMTP.
