  • is the format you need for your username, it will always be your full email address

Manual Configuration:

    • Port: 995
    • DO NOT configure your POP client to "leave (a copy of) mail (messages) on server".

Web Mail

Login to the Web Mail client at: NVIAC uses a Scalable Open Groupware server, called SOGo.

From there you can do a few useful things:
  • Change your password
  • Access messaging data: Send and receive your electronic mail for multiple accounts.
  • Edit mail filters (so messages can be filed in folders automatically based on things like who they're from or their subject lines)
  • Turn the "vacation" program on and off (to automatically reply to emails)
  • Access and share calendaring data
  • Access and share contact data

How to add your account to GMAIL in the Google Workspace

Windows 7

  • This is important: You must(should) Update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as default secure protocols in WinHTTP for Windows 7 and other systems older than Windows 10.
  • Recommended: Download and use the Nartac Software IIS Crypto GUI to easily enable the TLS secure channel protocols.
  • Using the IIS Crypto GUI tool, enable in the Schannel Client Protocols section, TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2.
  • Be careful, you will be lured into selecting and configuring "Best Practices" for your Win7 workstation. THIS COULD BREAK your other old, insecure, Win7 applications.

MacOS Yosemite 10.10 and Apple Mail 9.3 (2007)

This operating system and email client is no longer supported by Apple. We have not seen Outbound SMTP work in the old versions of Apple Mail
You may have to upgrade your operating system which will upgrade your client. Or switch to Thunderbird or Outlook for the Mac
