20 September 2015

I’ve recently started working at Newcastle University and found it a bit tricky to read my staff email with thunderbird. In case it saves anyone else some time, here’s the settings I used. This worked for me as of September 2015.

  • I used the thunderbird add-on ExQuilla. This accesses Microsoft Exchange email accounts. It requires a $10/year license, but has a 60 day free period where you can decide if you like it.
  • Create a new email account with ExQuilla
  • Put in your email address and password
  • Log in with userid (youruserid@newcastle.ac.uk) and leave domain blank.
  • Specify manual EWS URL: https://outlook.office365.com/EWS/Exchange.asmx and complete other details as you wish.
