ARTS email client setup (Outlook)

Setting up ARTS Email on your Computer

On a computer, your ARTS email address must be setup using Microsoft Outlook. The only alternative is webmail, which can be found at http://mail.arts.ryerson.ca (or via your smartphone).

On a lab computer

If you are logged on to a lab computer, Outlook will likely setup your email automatically when you open the program for the first time. If it doesn’t, follow the steps below for manual setup.

  1. Open Microsoft Outlook
  2. Tools > Accounts…
