  2. Select "Email account".
  3. Enter your email address/password and click "add account".
  4. Enter your uoregon email address and password.
  5. Enter your duck id for the username (email username excluding '@uoregon')
  6. For type, select "IMAP", then for incoming server enter:, then for outgoing server enter:
  7. Select "Use SSL to connect" for outgoing and incoming.
  8. Click Add Account.
