Access RacerMail from a Kentucky School System

If your Kentucky school blocks Google applications but you still want to check your RacerMail account at school with your Live@Edu account, you can use one of the following options.

Option 1 (recommended): Add your RacerMail address to your Live@Edu account. If you do not have access to an internet connection outside of school, this option will work for you to receive RacerMail in your school email account.

  1. Log in to your Windows Live (Live@Edu) email account at https://mail.kyschools.us
  2. From the Inbox view, click on the Options menu at the far, top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Click See All Options...
  4. Click Accounts from the list at the left.
  5. Click Connected Accounts, then New...
  6. Enter your full RacerMail address (example: jdoe23@murraystate.edu) and password.
  7. Click Next
  8. If you receive a message about unsecure connections, select Yes to continue.
  9. You may receive a message saying that Outlook Web App couldn't connect to the server. Click on the link POP in the last sentence to enter in your connection settings.
  10. New POP Account Connection settings:
    1. Display Name: (your name as you wish it to appear in outgoing email)
    2. E-mail address: (your full @murraystate.edu email address)
    3. User name: (your full @murraystate.edu email address)
    4. Password: (your full @murraystae.edu email password)
    5. Leave mail on server: (some schools require you to uncheck this box)
    6. Incoming server: pop.gmail.com
    7. Authentication: Basic
    8. Encryption: SSL
    9. Port: 995
  11. Click Save.
  12. If you are not prompted to add Server information, click on the new account under Connected Accounts and select Details.  Make sure the Server Information matches the settings in #10.
  13. Go to your inbox and open the "E-Mail Connection Verification" email. Click on the link provided to verify your account. This verification will allow you to send email from your @murraystate.edu email address through Outlook.
  14. Your mail should begin downloading and progress can be seen under Options > See All Options... > Accounts > Connected Accounts. It may take a while for your RacerMail to begin showing up in your school email inbox.
  15. Click on Mail in the top-left to return to the inbox.

Option 2: Forward your RacerMail to your school email account.  You will need to do this from another computer at home or in a public library that does not block Google applications. Forwarding instructions can be found on Google's Support Site.
