Transferring email from old UCL account (SquirrelMail)

Please note, we recommend that you use SquirrelMail as an archive to check your old email messages. These instructions are intended for users who want to transfer emails/folders onto their live@ucl account and wish to set this up themselves.


Step 1: Configure old UCL Account onto Email Client (i.e. Thunderbird, Outlook) - the below links describe how to do this using Thunderbird:

NB: For other email clients the following server settings are required:

Within UCL
Incoming: imap-server.ucl.ac.uk
SSL: Enabled
Port No: 993

Outside UCL
Incoming: imap2-server.ucl.ac.uk

Port No: 993
