 +====General Outgoing Email Configuration====
 +
 +If you are sending Olin email using a tool other than Microsoft Outlook or the [[https://​outlook.office.com/​|Office 365 web interface]],​ you will need to configure the "​outgoing mail server"​ or "​outgoing SMTP server"​ to use the Olin Office 365 configuration. These enhanced security requirements help to reduce the volume of spam flowing through email systems.
 +
 +Though the exact fields may be different in your email program, these are the general settings that are required:
 +
 +  * Outgoing SMTP server: **smtp.office365.com**
 +  * Outgoing SMTP port: **587** (do not use 25 or 465)
 +  * Use encryption: **TLS**
 +  * SMTP server login: //use your Olin UPN, such as// **jstudent@olin.edu**
 +  * SMTP server password: //use your Olin account password//
 +
 +//Using smtp.olin.edu or smtps.olin.edu for this configuration is no longer supported, and may stop working at any point.//
