Google Apps @ UA

Generic Settings

It is important to note that there is a separate password you need to use; different than the Authserv password used to access Google webmail. This password must be configured prior to using your Google email in an email client. This password is known as the "Google-side Password".

Before setting up your email client, set up your Google-side password.

You can use the following information to configure IMAP with many mail clients. If you encounter difficulties, we suggest contacting your phone provider's customer support department for further instructions -- we're unable to provide assistance with configuring mail clients not listed here.

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires SSL: imap.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS: smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587
Account Name: your full email address (including @alaska.edu)
Email Address: your full Google Apps @ UA email address (uausername@alaska.edu)
Password: your Google-side password

Please note that if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your Gmail address.

Also, if you're having trouble sending mail but you've confirmed that encyrption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.
