6. Accessing Existing Email Accounts

If you have an existing email account, for example via an Internet Service Provider (ISP) such as BT or NTL, you should be able to access this via your connection to the Oxford Network. Equally, you can access your Nexus account via a broadband or modem connection to an ISP's system. To access Nexus via another ISP, you can use the same email client configuration details listed above, except that you must configure your client to use authenticated SMTP for the sending of mail. The details of this vary between clients and are described in the various OUCS email client configuration pages.

Note also that certain restricted Oxford internal web pages may not be accessible via connections through other ISPs. In order to access such pages, you should make use of our VPN Service.
