Configure POP with Google Apps - Email

Configure POP3 access with Google Apps - Email

  1. Enable POP in Gmail. Don't forget to click Save Changes when you're done.
  2. Configure your client to match the settings below:
  3. Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:
    Use SSL: Yes
    Port: 995
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL: (use authentication)
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
    Port for SSL: 465
    Account Name: your full email address (including or
    Email Address: your email address ( or
    Password: your Gmail password

    Unless you're using recent mode to download mail to multiple clients, make sure you've opted not to leave messages on the server. Your Gmail settings determine whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won't affect how Gmail handles your mail.

    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 encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 465 or 587.

  4. You're now ready to use POP with your Gmail address.
