IMAP or Other Mail-Enabled Phone Instructions

Connecting your phone to Eagle Mail will depend on your phone type. Try one of the following methods.

email address = your full address (username@centralmethodist.edu)

Login ID = your username (e.g. John Q. Public = jpublic)

Password = your case-sensitive Eagle Mail password

 

Account type: IMAP (Internet Mail Access Protocol)

If your phone has a list of common carriers like Yahoo, AOL, Gmail, etc. you may have to choose "other > IMAP" or "Work" etc. It varies by device or mail program. This is the next-best option if your phone doesn't have the Exchange option.

Outgoing mail server = SMTP = mail.centralmethodist.edu
Use SSL = On/Yes
Authentication = On/Yes
Authentication type = "password authentication"
SMTP Port = 587

Incoming mail server = mail.centralmethodist.edu
Use SSL = On/Yes
Authentication = On/Yes
Authentication type = "password authentication"
Port = 993

 

Special Note for Mozilla Thunderbird or SeaMonkey mail clients

Thunderbird does NOT have a separate field to enter "Domain Name." Under the settings for "Security and Authentication" add "@cmc.edu" after your username.
e.g. User Name = jpublic@cmc.edu
This looks similar to our email address but MUST have "cmc.edu" NOT "centralmethodist.edu."
