Configure Exchange Email & Calendar in Apple Mail & Calendar (Macintosh)

Use the instructions below to configure UMass Amherst Exchange email and calendaring in Apple Mail and Calendar. We support the latest versions of Apple Mail and Calendar for Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). 

Note: In previous versions of OS X, some items have different names (e.g., in OS X 10.8, Internet Accounts was called Mail, Contacts & Calendars).

  1. In the Apple Menu, go to System Preferences... The System Preferences window opens.
  2. In the System Preferences window, click Internet Accounts. The Internet Accounts window opens.
  3. In the Internet Accounts window, you should see a list of account types on the right side of the window, including Exchange. If you do not see the list of account types, click the + button in the lower-left corner to make the list appear. Once the list of account types is visible, click Exchange. An Account Information window opens.
  4. In the Account Information window:
    • In the Full name field, enter your name as you'd like it to appear in the Sender field of your outgoing mail.
    • In the Email address field, enter NetID@umass.edu (e.g., bsmith@umass.edu). Check with the IT professional in your department if you are having problems configuring.
    • In the Password field, enter your UMass Amherst IT Active Directory/Exchange password, then click Continue. Note: This may be the same as your IT Account Password. The Account Summary window opens.
  5. In the Account Summary window, verify your settings and click Continue.
