OIT Mailbox Services (IMAP) Configuration

OIT Mailbox Services is the IMAP service available to some faculty and staff at UCI. For assistance with configuring UCI Gmail or Office 365/Exchange, please visit this page. If you are not sure what email service you are currently setup to use, please check What's my email or contact the OIT Help Desk.

While the setup guides may differ depending on your device, the general network settings below are the same for all:

  • Incoming Server: imap.uci.edu
    • Port: 993
    • Security/Type: SSL/TLS
    • Username: UCInetID (remove the @uci.edu)
    • Password: UCInetID password
  • Outgoing Server: smtp.uci.edu
    • Port: 587
    • Security/Type: TLS/STARTTLS
    • Username: UCInetID (remove the @uci.edu)
    • Password: UCInetID password
  • If you encounter any issues with the IMAP or SMTP servers, connect to the UCI VPN first. Instructions can be found here.
