Changes affecting LJMU Pop / Imap email users.

Posted: 07 Oct 2011

We are making changes to the LJMU email service ( which will affect staff & students who have their email configured to use the POP or IMAP protocols.

The smtp service will be moving from an old server to a new one on Wednesday 12th October

If you use pop or imap to receive email, and your email is configured to send via port 25 or port 587 (standard ports) then you do not need to make any changes, however changes are required if you are emailing through port 465, this port is no longer supported.

(Examples of email systems that use Pop/Imap are Windows Mail, Mail for Mac, Eudora, Thunderbird and some old phones and PDAs.)
