NMSU Exchange E-mail setup - Microsoft Entourage
Instructions to set up NMSU Exchange E-mail on Microsoft Entourage.
These instructions can be used to set up NMSU Exchange E-mail on Microsoft Entourage. By completing these steps, you can use Microsoft Entourage to view and send NMSU Exchange email instead of going through the NMSU website.
To complete these steps, you must have Microsoft Entourage installed on your computer and an NMSU Exchange e-mail account. If you do not have an NMSU Exchange account (an email address that ends with @ad.nmsu.edu), email firstname.lastname@example.org to request this service.
- Locate the Microsoft Entourage icon in the menu bar and click on it. In the Entourage window, go to the Entourage menu and click on Account Settings.
- The next window will be Accounts. In this window, either drop down the menu next to the icon labeled New and select Exchange, or just click on the New button.
- The next window will be the Set Up a Mail Account window. Under E-mail address, type in your NMSU exchange e-mail address. If you selected Exchange from the drop down menu in step 2, the box next to My account is on an Exchange server will be checked- if you clicked the New button, you will need to check this box. Now click the button labeled Configure Account Manually on the bottom left-hand side of the window
- The next window will be labeled Edit Account. Under the Account Settings tab, type in what you would like this account to be called in the Account name box. Under Personal information, type in your first and last name in the Name box and your exchange e-mail address in the E-mail address box. Under Authentication, select the Use my account information option. In the Account ID box, type in your Exchange username (usually this is the same as your myNMSU username). In the Domain box, type in ACN. In the Password box, type in your Social Security Number. Under Server information, type in exchange.nmsu.edu in the Exchange server box. Now check the box next to This DAV service requires a secure connection (SSL) and click OK.
NOTE: If you are not at your personal computer, you can access your Exchange e-mail by going to https://exchange.nmsu.edu. In the User name box, be sure to type acn\ before your username. *The slash in the User name is a back slash (\).
Congratulations! Your Microsoft Entourage is now ready to use with your NMSU Exchange E-mail settings. If you have any questions, come by the ICT Customer Service Center and Help Desk in room 141 of the Computer Center, call 646-1840, or e-mail us at email@example.com.
