Note: As of the posting date, MIIS does not provide free Microsoft Office for students. For this reason, students are suggested to use Outlook Webmail instead following the instructions here. For those who have Outlook on their computers, follow the instructions below to configure your Outlook to send and receive MIIS emails.
Skip steps 1-3 if you’re launching Outlook for the first time as it will automatically ask you if you want to create a new account.
1. Open Outlook.
2. Click to open the File tab.
3. From the File tab, click Info and then click Add Account.
4. When asked if you want to set up Outlook to connect to an email account, select Yes and then click Next.The Auto Account Setup wizard opens. Enter your name, your email address using your email@example.com, and your email password. Then, click Next.
A pop-up will appear for you to login to the Middlebury mail account. This time, input your firstname.lastname@example.org, and your email password, then click Sign in. Remember to change it to @middlebury.edu.
5. Outlook will complete the setup for your account, which might take several minutes. When you are notified that your account was successfully configured, click Finish.You may need to restart Outlook for the changes to take effect.
6. If the above steps do not work (or if you use another email client), you can manually set-up using the following settings:
Incoming IMAP server
Encryption Method: SSL
Outgoing SMTP server
Server name: smtp.office365.com
Encryption method: TLS
7. When all else fails, use Outlook Webmail.
GoldFax allows the MIIS community to send documents to an external fax number using the cloud. In essence you are emailing your document to GoldFax and they are faxing to the desired number.
The video below shows you how to fax via email or using one of our on-campus printers.
For the best results, we recommend that you update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch to the latest iOS. At this time, the latest is iOS 10. For more information on updating your Apple products, please refer to Apple’s support article.
Following the steps below will help you set up your MIIS email on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. We have included screenshots from setup on an iPhone, but the process is the same for the other devices.
1. On the Home Screen, tap on the “Settings” icon.
2. Tap on “Mail”.
5. Select “Exchange”.
6. Enter your email address and password. On this screen, you may use @miis.edu for your email address. The Description field is specific to yourself and merely allows you to differentiate between your accounts in the Mail app, so choose something that will help you do that (e.g. “MIIS” or “MIIS Mail”). Tap Next.
7. Use these specific settings:
Email: email@example.comfirstname.lastname@example.org **
Password: Your MIIS account password
**The “email” field is the reply-to address, so this is the address others will see when you email them. So depending on whether you prefer to use @middlebury.edu or @miis.edu, use your preference. The username field MUST be @middlebury.edu.
Tap Save, and the settings will be verified with the Exchange server. If you get an error message, check the details you have entered.
8. Select whether you want just your Mail to be synced on the device, or also your Contacts and Calendars (if you have any on your MIIS Exchange account). **Unless you keep an up-to-date list of contacts in Outlook, you should not synchronize contacts because your existing contacts on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch will be deleted. The same goes for your calendar. If you use your device’s calendar to organize your schedule, you should not synchronize your calendar. Tap Save.
If you have any further questions, please contact the ITS Help Desk at email@example.com or (831) 647-6656, or come visit us on campus in Casa Fuente 320.
Disclaimer: We provide these steps as a convenience to those who prefer to use Gmail as their email interface. If your MIIS email password expires, or if you change it – you are responsible for updating your Gmail account with your new credentials. ITS Helpdesk supports Microsoft Office 365 for its users and it’s expected that those choosing to use Gmail or another service will be responsible for maintaining authentication to that service.
That being said…

5. Put in “smtp.office365.com” as the “SMTP Server” and “587” as the “Port”. Your username and password for the MIIS email should be put there too. Then select “Secured connection using TLS” and click “Add Account”.
6. Within several minutes, you should get an email from gmail with the verification code. You can either click on the link in the confirmation email or enter the code.
