POP Mail Settings

Standard instructions:

  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: pop.gmail.com
    Use SSL: Yes
    Port: 995
    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS or SSL: smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
    Port for SSL: 465
    Account Name: your full email address (username@risd.edu)
    Email Address: your full email address (username@risd.edu)
    Password: your email password

    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.

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