It is university policy that
staff and students wishing to connect to their email from an external
platform should use OWA (click here).
However it is also currently possible to connect to the
KU email service via:
POP3 (server = mail.kingston.ac.uk. SSL must be enabled [port 995])
IMAP (server = mail.kingston.ac.uk. SSL must be enabled [port 993])
ActiveSync (server = kucahtkh.kingston.ac.uk)
Please note it is not possible
to send emails via POP or IMAP.
SMTP is NOT available for security reasons.
In all cases, use your normal University username and password. Please use the domain name 'KUDS' if required.
Please note that although these
services are available they are not directly supported by Information Services Support staff.
