Email Setup

Matriculated students and all paid 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.

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.

Get Started

Web-based Access

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.

Mobile Access

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: abc123@drexel.edu).

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].
