Why can't I just use a Hotmail mailbox?
Many Montana Tech administrative offices, departments and instructors now assume that All Tech students are actively checking their Montana Tech mailboxes. Therefore, some communications are sent only to the student E-Mail addresses and no longer via other methods (i.e. paper copy).
If you wish to use another mail service provider (e.g. Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc), you will need to configure the provider to check your Tech E-Mail account using POP3.
When configuring your provider to check your account, you will need the following settings.
POP3 Server: popmail.mtech.edu
Use SSL: Yes
The method of doing this is specific to each provider. Check your E-Mail provider's documentation for instructions on checking another account using POP3.

NEVER, NEVER, NEVER…!!! “reply back” to any email message pretending to be from the mail system or admin group asking for your – Username – Password - Social Security number- or any other sensitive information. Montana Tech will NEVER send you an email asking you for this information. Any such message is therefore NOT from Montana Tech and should be ignored and deleted.
