Outbound server smtp.mcgill.ca to be decommissioned November 30, 2017


Published: 14Nov2017

In order to increase the security of McGill’s network, the smtp email server, smtp.mcgill.ca  will be blocked starting on November 30, 2017.

If you have set up an email application using IMAP or POP protocols to access your McGill email, or if you are accessing your McGill email through a web-based email service, such as Gmail, Yahoo, or Hotmail, please ensure the outbound mail server is set to smtp.office365.com to avoid any problems sending email.

You can find instructions on configuring various email clients in the IT Knowledge Base.

Note that individuals who have recently sent email through the smtp.mcgill.ca server will be contacted by IT Services directly to notify them of this change.
