- Enable POP in your Gmail account. Don't forget to click Save Changes when you're done.
- Configure your client to match the settings below:
- You're now ready to use POP with your Gmail account.
|Incoming Mail (POP3) Server – requires SSL:||pop.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 Gmail username (including @gmail.com)|
|Email Address:||your full Gmail email address ([email protected])|
|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.
