Here are the email client settings you will need for UWA's student email service.

UWA recommends that you use IMAP. If your client does not support IMAP the POP settings are also listed below.

Enabling student email for IMAP or POP


Before setting up your email program you will need to enable your student email for either IMAP or POP using the following steps:

  1. Sign in to your UWA Student Email via the webmail.
  2. Click on the cog icon at the top right corner of the mailbox and choose 'Settings' from the drop down menu.
  3. Click 'Forwarding and POP/IMAP'.
  4. Enable IMAP or POP (you can enable both).

Enabling Less Secure Apps


Before setting up your email program you will need to enable 'Less Secure Apps' using the following steps:

  1. Sign in to your UWA Student Email via the webmail.
  2. Go to the 'Less secure apps' settings page. Please note that this link will take you to an external website.
  3. Select the 'Turn on' radio button.

While some desktop clients don't follow all modern security standards, the risk is minimal when you are a savvy internet user. Please contact BYOD for further information.
