How do I access my email account from home?
The easiest way is to use the DIT Portal http://mydit.ie which is available from anywhere on the Internet. To log in use your assigned username (usually your staff number) with your password. To manage your password, go to https://mypassword.dit.ie. For any email account queries, please contact the Service Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org, ext. 3123.
If you need to use an email client such as Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook, use the following settings:
Incoming server: imap.gmail.com
Outgoing server: smtp.gmail.com
You must turn on SMTP authentication for an email client to function outside the DIT network.
If you use a laptop at home and in work, you may use the above settings when connected to the DIT network also.
