If you would like to read your UFF-FIU e-mail from a different e-mail client, then the name of
the server is mail.uff-fiu.org. This address will accept POP3. If you would like to use
IMAP4, then the server is mail.server277.com. Tthe user name to use for the
e-mail client will be firstname.lastname@example.org. This server also needs TLS on port 993 with authentication.
Be sure that your outgoing server (SMTP server) is not set to an FIU server. You can also use mail.uff-fiu.org or mail.server277.com as your outgoing server. Use the same server that you used for the incoming server. In order to be sure that you are authorized to send mail through the server, always check your mail just before you send a message.
Please keep your mailboxes free of clutter. We have to pay for all the space that we use, so please delete messages that you no longer need.
To delete a lot of messages at once, increase the number of messages displayed on each page.
- Log into webmail.
- Select the Options tab at the top of the page.
- Select the General Options link.
- Set the Number of items per page: to a value from 10 to 1000.
- Click the Update button at the bottom of the page.
- Click the Advanced Search link in the upper left area of the page.
- Enter search criteria. To select old messages, set the to and from date fields.
- Click the Search button.
- Click Select All on the result page and then delete them. Since you increased the number messages displayed per page, you will be able to delete multiple messages at once.
This will delete all the messages from the folder. When you are done, be sure to delete all the messages in the Trash folder, since all the messages you deleted are still in that folder.
