Other Email Clients

Some notes on other legacy/unsupported email clients at UVM:

ETS has been running campus-wide email servers since the dawn of the Internet in the mid 90's. Unsurprisingly, we have gone though a number of supported email clients in the last 20+ years. Here are a few clients that may still work, but will not receive the same level of support as our currently recommended products:

  • Microsoft Outlook
    Outlook functions best as a client for Microsoft Exchange server, and on December 29th, 2015, it became our preferred method of email and calendar access. We recommend against using it in an IMAP configuration.

  • Eudora:
    Once the premier POP mail client on the Internet... is now ancient history.
  • Pine(Alpine)
    A powerful character-mode mail client that can be run on the "Zoo" command line. Drop your mouse and grab your keyboard!
  • Windows Mail / Outlook Express
    Outlook Express was the default email client on all versions of Windows prior to Vista. Support for those operating systems has ended, thus use of this client should as well.
  • Pegasus and Mulberry Mail
    Discontinued email clients seen in the past at UVM. Pegasus development continues, but Mulberry ended in 2007.
