POP / IMAP Email Clients for Students

Outlook Web Access (OWA), located at, is the TCU supported email client for use by students. Other POP3 or IMAP email clients may be configured to access TCU email accounts, but TCU cannot guarantee that they will work. For example, Eudora, Entourage, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook and Gmail may all be setup to access TCU email.


To configure POP or IMAP email clients:

  • Find the configuration settings or setup for the particular application and enter your TCU account information.  
  • IMAP is preferred over POP3, but either may be utilized.
  • Always use a secure connection (SSL)
    Port 995 for POP3.
    Port 993 for IMAP.
  • It is recommended to enable SMTP Authentification, if applicable.
  • If using an off-campus Internet Service Provider (ISP), please use the SMTP server address provided by the ISP or contact the ISP for assistance.
