UP Webmail can also be accessed using a mail client like Thunderbird. Below is configuration information on the mail client setup.

2. Click on File | New | Account... and type in mail.up.edu.ph

3. Select IMAP as your type of incoming server

4. Set your Server Settings to the ff:

    Server Name: smicro02.up.edu.ph
    Port: 143
    Security Settings: Never
    User Name: <your UP Webmail login name>

5. Set your Outgoing Server (SMTP) to the ff:

     (if inside Dilnet)
     Server Name: smtp.up.edu.ph
     Port: 25
     Secure Connection: TLS (if available)
