For more detailed instructions, find your Phone/PDA type listing below:

 

BlackBerry

  1. Do one of the following:
    1. Start up "Personal Email Set Up" on BlackBerry device. (Some of the newer devices may have this in a sub-folder.)
      If using this option you will need to follow the instructions in parenthesis including clicking on Get Link. 
    2. On Windows desktop go to BlackBerry Internet Services (URL will be different for each carrier!)

Palm OS

 

Unfortunately, TCU’s implementation of Exchange Server 2007 does not support the use of Exchange Active Sync on Palm OS devices. In view of this you must create a new account to connect to TCU mail using IMAP. The drawback of this method is that only emails can be synced wirelessly. Calendars, contacts, and tasks must now be synchronized using your Palm cable connected to your desktop and the Hot Sync software that came with your smartphone.

  1. Open email application (Versamail)
  2. Tap at top of window (should open menu bar)
  3. Tap at the top right Accounts
  4. Tap at the bottom of the menu Account Settings

    (For a “\” type a space and then push ALT then backslash is top right entry. Afterwards remove any extra spaces.)
    Password:         Enter your TCU password
  9. Tap on next 
  10. Fill in information –
    Email Address: User.Name@tcu.edu
    Incoming Mail Server: mobile.tcu.edu
    Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.tcu.edu
  11. Tap on next – Should display “Basic Setup for your mail account is complete…”

  13. Fill in information –
    Incoming Server Settings: Check the box “Use secure Connection (SSL)”
  14. Tap on next  
  15. Fill in information –
    Outgoing Server Settings: Check the box “Use secure Connection (SSL)”
