Desktop Client Setup

Many desktop clients support both IMAP and POP protocols, so it's best decide first which type would be best for your needs. This documentation provides instructions on how to set up Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird and Windows Live Mail desktop clients.

Please note that IMAP/POP desktop clients are not officially supported by SFU, and that the SFU Connect web client is the only officially supported client. Additionally, as of March 2015, users wanting to access mail via the POP protocol will have to request that the protocol is enabled for their account.
