Migration of Student Email to SMTPAuth

The University's student email system has been upgraded to improve the security and privacy of client connections. You can now update your email client to use an encrypted and authenticated connection (SMTPAuth). Instructions on how to update your email client configuration settings can be found on the University Systems website at https://www.uvic.ca/systems/support/emailcalendar/students/index.php

Over the next few months, we will be emailing clients who use non-encrypted/non-authenticated connections informing them of this change and asking them to update their email client settings. Once most users have migrated, we will set an end date for when we will no longer support non-encrypted/non-authenticated connections.

Please contact the Computer Help Desk with any issues or questions regarding this change:
