Apple Mail

SFU Mail has two fully supported desktop applications, Outlook 2016 for PC and Mac. For optimal experience with Outlook desktop applications, we recommend connecting using the native Exchange Protocols (EWS or MAPI).

Any other third party desktop applications, such as Apple Mail and Thunderbird, will be partially supported.

Setup Instructions

1. On your machine, find the Apple Mail application and open it.  Once open, a window will appear to choose a mail account provider.  Select Microsoft Exchange and click Continue.

2. Enter your name and SFU credentials and click Sign In.

3. Select the applications that you would like to synchronize your SFU Mail account with, then click Done.

4. The application may take several minutes to initially synchronize the data from your SFU Mail account. Once the data is synchronized, the setup of Apple Mail is complete.
