Below are the settings to connect a third-party email client such as Outlook Express, Thunderbird, or any mobile device to the Villanova Exchange server. If you are on the Villanova Gmail server you can find instruction here.
- Incoming Server: imap.villanova.edu (port 143)
- Outgoing Server: smtp.villanova.edu (port 25)
- Username: (same as your myNova user name)
- Password: (same as your myNova password)
Username and password is the same as LDAP/VUAD credentials used for myNova and Webmail. The outgoing server requires authentication via these same credentials.

Please note that you will not be able to utilize all of the features of Villanova's Microsoft Exchange server if you connect to your Villanova mailbox using a third-party email client. Therefore, while you will be able to retrieve the mail in your Inbox (and other folders if using an IMAP connection) using one of these clients, you will not be able to access your other Mail folders, Contacts, Calendar, tasks, etc.
