It is important to note that your password must be configured prior to using your Google email in an email client.
Before setting up your email client, set your password in ELMO.
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
|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 (email@example.com)|
|Password:||your ELMO 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.
