RMail (Email Clients)

Setting Up an Email Client

You can access RMail by configuring an email client that communicates with the Ryerson mail server. Email clients use internet mail system protocols such as: SMTP, POP3, and IMAP.

Step-by-step instructions are available to assist you in setting up your preferred email client. Both Mozilla Thunderbird and MS Outlook are detailed in this section. Select your choice from the buttons above. Full support is not available for users choosing to use an email client due to the wide range of home systems.
