#Fill out your information. The way you write your name is the way it will appear in the heading of your emails to other people. For email address use either your unix (08xyz) or full name (Franklin.Bluth@williams.edu).
#For Incoming server use
â€œstudentmail.williams. eduâ€#For Outgoing server use â€œmail.williams. eduâ€
Optional: You can set Outlook to download your e-mail from the IMAP server onto your personal computer if you are so inclined. The advantage is that you can get to all your e-mail just by opening Outlook, without connecting to the server (or the Internet at all, for that matter). The downside is that sometimes Outlook loses contact with the IMAP server and might shut down the rule you set up.
