If you are using a University-owned computer on campus, and you sign into it with your NetID, then launching Outlook should automatically configure the program to access your e-mail.
If you are off-campus, or the computer does not automatically connect to your e-mail, then follow these instructions. Outlook 2003 is seen as outdated software, and IT recommends purchasing a more recent version of the program. However, it should still be possible to connect to our mail server via a process known as RPC over HTTP.
- Access your computer's Control Panel and double-click on the Mail icon.
- Your Mail Setup screen displays. Click Show Profiles.
- Your Mail screen displays. Highlight the Outlook profile and click Add.
- On the New Profile screen, enter a unique name for your mailbox. In this example, we are using "Nevada Exchange".
- When the Add New E-mail Account wizard opens, check Manually configure server settings or additional server types.
- On the Choose E-Mail Service screen, select Microsoft Exchange radio button then click Next.
- On the Microsoft Exchange Settings screen, type the following information:
Click More Settings...
- Microsoft Exchange Server: UCCAS.UNR.EDU
- User Name: UNR E-mail Address (e.g. NetID@unr.edu)
- If you are prompted for a username and password, click Cancel until it allows you to click More Settings. If you are prompted for a username and password again, click Cancel until you see the Microsoft Exchange screen.
- On the Microsoft Exchange screen, select the Security tab and check the box to Encrypt data between Microsoft Office Outlook and Microsoft Exchange.
- On the Connection tab, select Connect using my Local Area Network (LAN) then check Connect my Exchange mailbox using HTTP and click Exchange Proxy Settings.
- On the Microsoft Exchange Proxy Settings screen, complete the following settings:
- Under Use this URL to connect to my proxy server for Exchange type https://owa.unr.edu
- Check Only connect to proxy servers that have this principal name in their certificate. Type msstd:owa.unr.edu
- Check both boxes: On fast networks, connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP and On slow networks connect using HTTP first, then connect using TCP/IP.
- Under Proxy Authentication settings select Basic Authentication.
- Click OK and OK again to go back to the main screen.
- Finish the wizard
- Start Outlook.
- Select your mail profile and authenticate using your UNR E-mail address and NetID password.
