  • Set up Gmail with Outlook, Apple Mail, or other mail clients
Using legacy Protocols helps you to 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 available 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.

Step 1: Enable IMAP

You can retrieve your Gmail messages with a client or device that supports IMAP, like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail.

  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click the gear in the top right .
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
  5. Select Enable IMAP.
  6. Click Save Changes.

Step 2: Set up your client

Use the table below to update your client with the correct information.

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server:imap.gmail.com
Requires SSL: Yes
Port: 993
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server:smtp.gmail.com
Use Authentication: Yes
Port for SSL:: 465 or 587
Use same settings as incoming mail server
Full Name or Display Name:[your name]
Account Name or User Name:your full email address (including @gmail.com or @your_domain.com)
