Outlook: Account setup for Amber

Introduction

This document should show you how to setup Outlook to send and receive email through the CSC mail server, amber. Amber has the following features:

  • Amber supports SMTP-auth. This allows users to relay mail through amber based on username/password authentication instead of TCP/IP based restrictions.
  • Amber is equipped with Virus and Spam scanners, dramatically lowering the amount of unwanted and dangerous email.
  • Amber has the ability to perform backups without interrupting mail flow.
  • An improved web interface supports searching of mail boxes.
  • All POP and IMAP traffic to and from amber is encrypted. This reduces the chances of a mail account hijacking.

The screen shots for this how-to are from Outlook 2007 for Win7, but the interface should look pretty much the same irrespective of the platform you are running on.
