Accessing your Wooster email

Members of the campus community can configure any e-mail client to check their Wooster account through IMAP or POP. This includes smartphones and other “smart” devices such as the iPod Touch and iPad.

Be aware that if you are off-campus and using anything other than ScotMail (scotmail.wooster.edu) or Groupwise you will not be able to send e-mail using the college’s mail servers unless you are connected to the college’s network via VPN. Receiving e-mail in your Wooster account will work just fine.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) account*

Incoming mail servers: imap.wooster.edu.

Outgoing mail servers: imap.wooster.edu.

* User Services recommends using IMAP accounts when possible since, unlike POP accounts, they are generally configured to sync the messages between a client and the email server rather than delete messages once they have been downloaded.

POP (Post Office Protocol) account

Incoming mail servers: pop.wooster.edu.

Outgoing mail servers: pop.wooster.edu.

 You should not use the POP protocol if you want to be able to read emails from a variety of devices (laptop, smart phone, etc…) since it often deletes the emails from the server once they are read.
