Google Apps Email Server Settings

Posted by Daniel on November 7, 2010

Here are the settings you'll need when configuring a desktop or mobile email client to check your Google Apps email account. For Slamdot customers using email on Slamdot's servers instead of Google Apps, please see our article with the Slamdot Email Server Settings.

Before you can download and manage email messages on your desktop or mobile email client using Google Apps, you will need to enable POP and/or IMAP inside of your Google Apps account. This may be done by default, but if you have trouble receiving email after verifying the settings below, you should double-check to make sure POP or IMAP are enabled.
