Email program settings for Hermes

Links to detailed email application settings for Hermes accounts

Personal email application settings

You need to configure your mail program with secure settings, to encrypt the connection and prevent your password being snooped while it is being sent across the network. These settings will also let you use Hermes (including sending mail) from your personal device when you are working at home (but not using the VPDN service) or are away from Cambridge.

The following pages are intended for use if you are configuring a personal machine. On public machines, for example an MCS or a departmental system, the settings will have been pre-configured:

Note: If your mail program is one of the ones named above, follow the instructions in that page. If it is not mentioned in the menu then there is a page that gives generic guidelines and also a page giving a list of ports and protocols supported by Hermes.

Settings for mobile devices

Further information for mobile devices (e.g. iPhone, Android, iPad) can be found on the mobile devices pages.

Finding other people's Cambridge email addresses automatically

If you would also like to be able to look up Cambridge email addresses automatically, please see the pages on configuring your mail program to use the University LDAP Directory. Do this after you have set up your mail program to access Hermes.
