Please choose the appropriate guide from the following list for the email client you plan to use. Contact Technology Help for assistance.
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) strongly recommends the use of the Google web client, as it maximizes the full collaborative features and functionality of Gmail. However, your Google Apps for the University of Minnesota Gmail account also can be configured to work with a number of email clients so that you can retrieve your Gmail messages with clients or devices that support IMAP.
To set up your desktop or mobile client or device, follow the instructions for your particular client or device on the Google Help Center website or refer to the guides under the Central Email section, and use this University of Minnesota-specific information (Note—IMAP has been enabled for you already by the University):
Port Number*: 587
Security Type*: TLS
*Note: If you have trouble sending using TLS and port 587, try using SSL and port 465.
