Configuring Exchange for Mail App on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6)


This documentation provides the steps for setting up your Exchange account on Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) or Snow Leopard (10.6). Once the setup is complete your Exchange Mail, Calendar, and Address Book will be accessible via the apps specified in this documentation.

Important Note: This procedure is only for use with Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or 10.6 Snow Leopard. If you are running an earlier version of OS X you will not be able to access your Exchange mailbox through applications and will instead need to use webmail (see NEW Webmail: Accessing Exchange calendar and email at home or on the road via Outlook Web App). If you have OS X 10.7 Lion or 10.8 Mountain Lion, please see Configure Exchange for Mail App on Mac OS X Lion (10.7) and Mountain Lion (10.8)).

3) Enter in your name, your NetID email address, and your NetID password. Click “Continue”

4) You will see an Account Summary page that looks like this:

Make sure the server says “”

Click “Continue”

5) Go to “Mail” then “Preferences” and make sure that your incoming and outgoing servers are both listed as “

Note: Username must included win\ before netID in this format: win\yourNetID

6) You have now successfully configured your Mail App for Brockport Exchange. It may take a few minutes before your email will start to flow into the Inbox.

7) Use the programs in the “Applications” folder (they are usually on the dock as well) to work with your Exchange mailbox. “Mail” for email, “iCal” for your calendar and tasks, and “Address Book” to manage your contacts, distribution lists, and the Exchange Global Address List.
