Email Access


Downloading your Email using POP3

POP3, while not supported by Keystone College's Help Desk, is another way to access your email.  POP3 is not supported since it is not secure, if not configured correctly it removes the email from our server, and is sometimes confusing to setup.

POP3 from Home

When setting up a POP3 client from home you will need to know the name of the SMTP server that is on your network.  This will be the SMTP server of your ISP or your company, and you will need to get that information from them.

Most POP3 clients need the following information:

When your email program starts it will prompt for the type of account, select POP3.  Follow the prompts and enter the information requested.

POP3 from Residence Halls

When setting up a POP3 client from a residence hall you will need the following information:

When your email program starts it will prompt for the type of account, select POP3.  Follow the prompts and enter the information requested. In order to use SMTP, you must authenticate, so when entering these settings, you will need to look for Advanced Settings, then find where you can specify that your SMTP server requires authentication, and that you'd like to use the same username and password as you used to check your mail. If you don't do this, you will be able to receive mail, but not send.

Students and employees are assigned an email address to which all official communication is sent. Outlook is the supported method of email on college owned computers.

To use Outlook on a college owned computer, simply logon to the computer with your Network username, open Outlook and it will configure itself and be ready for use.

Off-Campus Email Access
To access your Keystone College email account from an off-campus computer, click the Outlook Outlook Icon icon on the Current Students or Faculty and Staff web page using Internet Explorer.

Alternatively you can visit the mail server directly by visiting https://exchange.keystone.edu/owa. From there simply enter your network username and password to login.
