Solismail on macOS (Mail)

This manual describes how to set up your e-mail (Solis mail), contacts and calendar on your Mac using the default mail program.

Do you have Microsoft Office with Outlook on your Mac? Then we recommended using the Outlook app for your UU mail. If you choose to use the Mail app, make sure you have at least MacOS version 10.14 (Mojave)  or 10.15 (Catalina) installed on your Mac.

  • Step 1

    • Make sure you are connected to Eduroam.
    • Start “Mail” from the dock at the bottom of the screen.

  • Did you already set up a mail account (for example your private e-mail? The Mail app will open as usual.

    And in that case, first go to “Mail” and click on “Accounts”

  • Step 2

    Click (or select) “Exchange” and then “Continue”.

  • Step 3

    Fill out the following details:

    Name: your full name

    Email Address: your UU e-mail address with all your initials

    Password: your Solis-password

    Then press:  “Sign in”.

  • Step 4

    Then select which options (data) you want to use from your mailbox. Make sure to include “Mail”, then click “Done”.

  • Step 5

    You’re all set now.

    Please note: it may take some time for all of your e-mail to become visible.
    Your PC will be working in the background for a while and you might only see a few folders of your e-mailbox at first.
