Depending on your personal settings, you may be able to set up your email using Exchange and Auto Discovery. To do this, click Add Account (usually found in the file menu) and follow the instructions. You will usually only have to enter your name, email address (studentID@student.curtin.edu.au) and OASIS password.

Alternatively, you can set up your email using POP or IMAP. Specific instructions for a variety of clients are available on Microsoft's help page Access Your Account Using IMAP or POP email Programs. Make sure you incorporate Curtin's POP or IMAP settings as seen below.

The details on a range of connection options to Student Email are described at Email Setup.
