Introduction

This guide will tell you how to configure your mobile device to connect to CSCS's email servers.

  • A CSCS user account (providing either an @medschl.cam.ac.uk or @slcu.cam.ac.uk email address)

FAQ

 I'm not sure I'm entering the correct password - how can I check?
You should be using the same credentials you use to log into departmental computers. A good way to check if you have the correct credentials is to try logging in via Webmail
 My password isn't working, but I'm sure it's correct...

If an incorrect password has been entered too many times, your account may be locked. If this is the case, try again later in the day and check what you enter is correct (click show password).

 I use an @cam.ac.uk email address. What settings should use?

 Although an @cam.ac.uk email address is usually associated with the central Hermes email system, it can be configured to point to any University mailbox. So, you could be using it with your Medschl or SLCU mailbox. The easiest way to check is to try logging in via Webmail , including https://webmail.medschl.cam.ac.uk
