Microsoft Outlook is provided to faculty and staff on their campus desktops whether it is run through Windows or Mac. Faculty and staff also have webmail access.
Webmail access is provided to students, faculty, staff and emeriti.
What is Webmail?
The Kalamazoo College email system is Microsoft Exchange.
Webmail (a.k.a. Outlook Web Access or OWA) provides access to your Exchange email messages, calendar and contact information using only a web browser. It provides most of the functionality of installed Outlook or other email client software. If you need secure access to Exchange when away from your primary personal computer, Webmail can provide it.
For Windows PCs and Apple/Mac systems, webmail works with any modern browser.

Logging into Webmail – Other IMAP Mail Client
If you are using Thunderbird or some other IMAP mail client, you’ll need to manually update your account information to point it to Exchange Online’s IMAP server information. Listed below is a summary of information; however, more details are available at Microsoft’s POP3 and IMAP4 in Exchange Online page.
The following instructions may help iPhone users to set up email after being migrated to Exchange Online.

The following instructions may help Android users to set up email for the Samsung Mail, Gmail, and Outlook applications after being migrated to Exchange Online. Please note that the steps may also vary depending on the preferred email app.
Microsoft Outlook App for Android
Remove Kalamazoo College email from phone (if it exists in the Outlook app).
Open Outlook and select Add Account.
Enter your email address as the long format address, not email@example.com. For example, you will enter in the format of:
Students – First.Last21@kzoo.edu (James.Doe21@kzoo.edu)
Select Next. You will then be directed to the College’s sign-in page. It will pre-populate your email address from the previous Microsoft sign-in entry.
Enter your password into the password field.
Select Sign In
You will then get the “Permissions Requested” screen. Select Accept.
Your email should now be setup on your Android device!
Your account can also be manually configured for the built-in mail client on your mobile device (i.e. Apple Mail or Samsung Mail). Android devices can differ when manually configuring your college account. Most Android phones have their own flavor of mail client, typically built by the manufacturer. Even Apple devices can differ slightly because of minor tweaks Apple has made over the years. Generally, if the mail app supports Exchange mailboxes, you can use the information above to configure your account.
For Android devices, the process can usually be initiated inside of the built-in mail app. If you are opening the mail app for the first time, it should greet you with a selection of account types. Again, if Exchange is an option (it typically is), select it. If you already have an email account set up for your built-in mail app, there should be an option to add an additional account inside the app.
