E-Mail - Using and Configuring E-Mail

LEGACY INFORMATION - THE PHYSICS MAIL SYSTEM IS NOW FORWARDING-ONLY

Can no longer send email because of Physics mail changes? Need to change your outgoing mail settings to another SMTP/outgoing server?

(re: last step - test it by sending someone else a message - g.harvard/gmail will treat it as a duplicate of the message) 

iPhone
Open Settings and look under Mail, Contacts & Calendar

Android
If using Google mail (g.harvard.edu or gmail.com) this should already be set. If using another mail system/app such as Outlook, check the settings inside the app

Google Web Mail
If you are using the Google web mail interface and have your Physics address set up there, you’ll need to:

  1. Go to Settings (gear icon)
  2. Click Accounts and Import
  3. Make sure your Google address is marked as ‘default’ (if not, click ‘make default')
  4. Under Send Mail As make sure "When replying to a message:” to “Always reply from default address"
  5. Delete the Physics entry there as you won’t be able to send mail from it any longer.
