UTmail

Mobile Device and Client Configuration

Step-by-step instructions for configuring your mobile device to access your UTmail account can be found at http://learn.googleapps.com/mobile-users-3.

While UTmail offers an easy-to-use web interface for email access, you can also access your UTmail mailbox with a third-party mail client. To configure a third-party email client, you must first enable IMAP within your UTmail account settings.

To enable IMAP in UTmail:

  1. Sign in to UTmail.
  2. Click the gear icon in the upper-right and select UTmail settings at the top of any UTmail page.
  3. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
  4. Select Enable IMAP.
  5. Click Save Changes.
