Set up Gmail with Outlook, Apple Mail, or other mail clients
You can download messages from Gmail and see them using a program like Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, or Thunderbird, even when you aren’t online. This process is called POP or IMAP, and is free for all Gmail users.
Tip: We recommend using IMAP if possible because it’s the best way to make sure you can see all your mail at any time on all of your devices. If you’d like to use POP instead, learn how to enable POP.
Use Gmail for automatic email responses
When you use an email client, like Outlook or Apple Mail, automatic email replies might not work as you expect.
It’s a good idea to use Gmail’s vacation responder, which you can set up in Gmail Settings, rather than one provided by the non-Gmail service. Learn more about automatic responses in Gmail.
Get startedI want to enable IMAP
You can retrieve your Gmail messages with a client or device that supports IMAP, like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail.
Enable IMAP in your Gmail settings
- Sign in to Gmail.
- Click the gear in the top right .
- Select Settings.
- Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
- Select Enable IMAP.
- Click Save Changes.
Note: This setting is not available while using the basic HTML view of Gmail. To enable IMAP, use the standard view instead. Find out more about standard view and basic HTML view.
Once you’ve enabled IMAP in your Gmail settings, you need to configure your client. Select a client below to see specific configuration instructions.Other
Google Apps users, please follow the default instructions unless otherwise noted, replacing ‘your_domain.com’ with your actual domain name.
Many clients will automatically configure the appropriate IMAP connection settings for your account, but confirm that the connection settings your client configures are the same as what’s listed below.
If you’re using a client that’s not listed above, you can also use the following information to configure your IMAP. If you have problems, contact your mail client’s customer support department for further instructions.
Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server – Requires SSL
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – Requires TLS
Port: 465 or 587
Requires SSL: Yes
Requires authentication: Yes
Use same settings as incoming mail server
Full Name or Display Name: [your name]
Account Name or User Name: your full Gmail address (email@example.com). Google Apps users, please enter username@your_domain.com
Email address: your full Gmail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) Google Apps users, please enter username@your_domain.com
Password: your Gmail password
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 encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.
Username and password not working? Some apps require you to also turn on access for less secure apps before setting up POP/IMAP connections.
6. Add your details to the new incoming email server
7. Connection Issues
- I searched the cloud for solutions alos to my Odoo email set up problem and found this Odoo Forum post to be quite informative.
- I looked at this google apps document to allow less secure apps to be used
- In fact my client hadn’t informed or i’d forgotton if the email address was actualy a google app!
