1) Log in to the Office 365 portal with your preferred web browser: portal.office.com

2, From the app launcher, start Mail

3) Please sign out from the Office 365 portal every time before closing the browser window. The Sign out button can be found on the top right corner of the portal, behind the profile picture.

 

ACCESSING YOUR MAILBOX WITH AN E-MAIL CLIENT APPLICATION

To access your CEU mailbox using an e-mail client application (such as MS Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, Mac Mail, etc.) you will need the following parameters:

 

Access method: Exchange / Activesync / Office 365

On those email clients that support one of the methods above, simply enter outlook.office365.com as server name, and your mailbox will be set up automatically after providing your username / password.

ACCESSING YOUR MAILBOX ON MOBILE PLATFORMS

If you wish to set up your CEU email on your mobile devices, we recommend you to check this guide. Note that you can use either your preferred email app or Microsoft’s free Outlook app.

 

WHAT IS POP3?

In computing, the Post Office Protocol (POP) is an application-layer Internet standard protocol used by local e-mail clients to retrieve e-mail from a remote server over a TCP/IP connection. POP and IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) are the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval. Virtually all modern e-mail clients and servers support both. The POP protocol has been developed through several versions, with version 3 (POP3) being the current standard.

 

WHAT IS IMAP?

The Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) is one of the two most prevalent Internet standard protocols for e-mail retrieval, the other being the Post Office Protocol (POP).[1] Virtually all modern e-mail clients and mail servers support both protocols as a means of transferring e-mail messages from a server, such as those used by Gmail,[2] to a client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, KMail, Apple Mail and Microsoft Outlook.

 

WHAT IS SMTP?

Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) is an Internet standard for electronic mail (e-mail) transmission across Internet Protocol (IP) networks. SMTP was first defined in RFC 821 (STD 15),[1] and last updated by RFC 5321 (2008)[2] which includes the extended SMTP (ESMTP) additions, and is the protocol in widespread use today. SMTP is specified for outgoing mail transport and uses port 25.

While electronic mail servers and other mail transfer agents use SMTP to send and receive mail messages, user-level client mail applications typically only use SMTP for sending messages to a mail server for relaying. For receiving messages, client applications usually use either the Post Office Protocol (POP) or the Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) to access their mail box accounts on a mail server.
