For security reasons, you are required to use encryption for accessing email (IMAP) and sending outgoing email (SMTP).

For IMAP, set the port to 993 and click on the "Use SSL" or "Use secure connection (SSL)" check box.

For SMTP, click on the "Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)" check box or the "TLS" radio button under "Use secure connection:" and make sure the port is set to 587.

Use your HEP.WISC.EDU kerberos password, which is the same one you would use to login to Linux machines.

Please do not hesitate to contact if you have any questions about these parameters.
