Email Setup @ BYUI

Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM Call us: (208) 496-9000

On-Campus Settings

On-campus users are treated royally.  Outlook will automatically recognize you through the magic of "AutoDiscover"!

Allow AutoDiscover to configure your server settings.

If you see the message, "Allow this website to configure myname@byui.edu server settings?", simply answer "Allow".

Off-Campus Settings

  • Many email programs, such as, Hotmail and Gmail will allow you to retrieve messages from another email address using either POP3 or IMAP. BYU-Idaho does not directly support connecting a your email account in this way to any clients except Outlook or Entourage, but if you choose to use a different application, the below configuration will allow you to download messages.
  • To change your server settings refer to the information below. The examples below are for an employee doej@byui.edu with johndoe123 as his BYU-Idaho User Name (formerly known as a net-id).

Outlook 2010/2013 for Windows

The easiest way to set up Outlook is through something called "Outlook Anywhere" and documented at http://www.byui.edu/help-desk/employee-home-email-setup-windows.
