Office 365 Email Setup
Drexel matriculated students and all paid Drexel faculty and professional staff are provided with email service through Microsoft Office 365. Office 365 offers better Web and mobile device support, calendar and contact integration, 50 GB for storage, and improved email security with Email Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).
See more information about Microsoft Office 365 at Drexel.
What You Need
You must set up your Common Accounts before you can use any email services. Once that is completed, you may access your email in any of the ways listed below.
If you use a Drexel-owned Mac, enroll it in Self Service for MacOS, a tool that improves application and system setup and automates software maintenance for Macs.
Faculty, professional staff, and students sign in through the Office 365 Mail App at portal.office.com. Click on the "Mail" tile to access your email:
You may also install Office apps, including Outlook, from portal.office.com.
Windows-based Client Access
You may install Office 2016, including the Outlook desktop client, by signing in to portal.office.com with your Drexel credentials and clicking "Install Office 2016." Once Outlook is installed, add your email account using your Drexel sign-in credentials. See our instructions for configuring Outlook.
Apple-based Client Access
Add your account to Apple Mail using your Drexel sign-in credentials.
For information on receiving your Drexel email on your phone, use the mail app to add an Office 365 account (not a POP or IMAP account). Your email address is your full Drexel username (example: email@example.com).
About Email Forwarding
Faculty and professional staff may not forward their Drexel Office 365 email to another address. Students may set up email forwarding by signing into portal.office.com and clicking the "Mail" tile.
About IMAP Access
Faculty who require the older Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) may request an email configuration variance. Requests are reviewed by deans and information security and privacy officials. More information is available on the request form [PDF].
