Access UNISA MyLife E-Mail from MS Outlook
Yes you can receive your UNISA emails in Outlook.
I must admit I tried several times, encrypted and uncrypted mode, to use the Exchange to add a mail profile as they describe on the help here, but given up on it. Used my existing profile, and tried to add MyLife a/c, tried a New Profile. But it doesn’t work for me. Still waiting for a reply from UNISA.
Alternatively you can set POP3 and IMAP, personally I prefer IMAP.
If you want to see what the differences between the two are, have a look here.
I am assuming that you know how to add an e-mail
Settings for POP3:
Settings for IMAP:
Note: Login to Windows Live Outlook using your MyLife id and have a look at the addressbar to confirm the SMTP mail server.
Drop the https:// and /owa. only use podxxxxx.outlook.com.
How to see additional IMAP Folders
That’s it, now you can receive your e-mails.
Note to Students of the School of Computing:
Since UNISA and Microsoft has collobrate services, we can use now in South Africa use Microsoft Student Services.
You can download software for free, like MySQL Server, Visual Studio etc.
Have a look at Microsoft DreamSpark site.
IT’S FOR FREE!!!!!
To all my fellow students of UNISA’s School of Computing, Happy Coding!!!
