Summary: This page describes the necessary settings for IMAP clients to connect to the UW Exchange server. For detailed setup procedures for specific IMAP client programs, see Connecting to the UW Exchange Server.
IMAP Client Programs Provide Only Email, Not Calendar, Tasks, or Contacts
When you connect to an Exchange server using an IMAP client program, you get only Exchange email functionality. You do not get access to the other features of Exchange: calendar, tasks, and contacts. The Exchange IMAP service is minimal, and not all functions of the client program may perform as quickly or exactly the same as with UW Deskmail.
Use these settings to set up any IMAP client software program to connect to the UW Exchange server.
