==== [[Activating Your Middlebury Account]] ====
 
All MIIS registered students, faculty and staff are given network accounts with access to various Middlebury resources.  Click [[Activating Your Middlebury Account|here]] for instructions on activating your Middlebury network and email account.
 
 
 
====[[Configuring Your FirstClass Account]] ====
 
During this transition from FirstClass to Exchange, we'll be using two email systems and you'll have an account on both systems. To convert to Exchange, you must set your FirstClass account to forward incoming messages and manage your Mailbox appropriately.
 
 
 
====WebMail====
 
The easiest way to access your new email account is to use your web browser to access the email server directly at: [http://mail.middlebury.edu http://mail.middlebury.edu]
 
 
 
The "Outlook Web Access" interface includes many basic and intermediate mail functions and performs very well over the Internet.  Best results are found using Microsoft's Internet Explorer, but you can use other web browsers like FireFox, Safari or Chrome, etc.  Results with these other browsers may vary.
 
 
 
====Configuring Email Clients====
 
If you currently own and use a mail client to access other email accounts, you can very likely use this same client to access your new Exchange account.  Here are instructions for some popular email clients.

====[[Configuring Microsoft Entourage 2008 for Mac]]====
 
 
 
====[http://www.middlebury.edu/academics/lis/help/helpdesk/documentation/email/imap_pop3_smtp.htm#smtp_change Configuring Microsoft Entourage Home & Student Edition for Mac]====
 
The Home & Student edition of the Microsoft Entourage does not support connection to an Exchange server using Exchange's native protocol. However you can configure this version to connect to via another protocol called IMAP. The link above takes you to generalized instructions for configuring any client (Entourage Student ed., Mac mail, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc).
 
 
 
===Your Email Address===
 
MIIS currently uses two email addresses for each person.  Your new Exchange email address is generally your Middlebury network account --username-- followed by the domain @exchange.miis.edu.  If your name is Joe Student, your email address will most likely be jstudent@exchange.miis.edu.  If you have a name that matches someone already registered at Middlebury, your username may be slightly different.
