UCS: AUTHSMTP Configurations

Authenticated Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (AUTHSMTP) is one of the three email authentication types available to Penn State Access Account holders. There are three things to know about AUTHSMTP.

  1. AUTHSMTP is recommended for accessing mail from off-campus. 
  2. An AUTHSMTP connection does NOT require the VPN Client when off-camus.
  3. If VPN and AUTHSMTP are used simultaneously an error will occur.

NOTE: Windows Mobile phone users should use Outgoing Email port 465 NOT 587.

Below are instructions for AUTHSMTP configurations split out by connection type.

1. IMAP Connections

2. POP3 Connections
