Sending E-mail Through Exchange

During the Fall semester, we upgraded our mail server to Exchange 2010. As a final minor change, we will also be moving the Authenticated SMTP to the Exchange server as well. While this is pretty technical, the campus effects are very minimal.

For those who use Outlook, Outlook Web Access (http://mail.shsu.edu), or ActiveSync there will be no noticeable change. In fact, this upgrade will not affect you at all. Those who use devices or mail clients to check their SHSU e-mail that do not support Exchange protocol will be affected. If this is you, please be sure to have your mail client configured to the following:

Outgoing Mail Server

  • Server Name: smtp.shsu.edu
  • Use port 587. (Ports 25 and 465 will no longer work after this update.)
