The settings provided below are for email clients that are not supported by Google or by HSU IT Services and are not recommended for University use. If you do not want to use the web-based Google Apps , Outlook with Google Apps Sync or Mac Mail are the preferred local email clients.
While POP is enabled on the server, we strongly advise you not to use it. POP downloads your mail from the server and onto your computer, so those messages will not be available to you if you access webmail from another computer.
If you do wish to go ahead and set up a POP client for your Google Apps email, please follow the instructions below.
First, enable POP in Google Apps:
|Incoming mail (POP3) server (requires SSL):||
Use SSL: Yes
|Outgoing mail (SMTP) server (requires TLS or SSL):||
Use authentication: Yes
Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
Port for SSL: 465
|Account name:||Your email address, e.g., firstname.lastname@example.org |
|Email address:||Your email address, e.g., email@example.com |
|Password:||Your HSU password|
Unless you're downloading mail to multiple clients, make sure you've opted not to leave messages on the server. Your POP settings in Google Apps settings are what determines whether or not messages stay on the server, so this setting in your client won't affect how Gmail handles your mail.
Note that, if your client does not support SMTP authentication, you won't be able to send mail through your client using your HSU email address. 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.
