Configure your email client (Outlook, Thunderbird, Mac Mail)

Note: While you can configure a local email client to work with your Google Apps mail, many people have found that the Web interface is very good and have switched to reading their mail this way exclusively.

If you prefer to access your mail in an email program (client) such as Outlook, Thunderbird, or Mac Mail, you can configure the software as an IMAP client for Google Apps To do so:

  1. Obtain your Google Apps password.
  2. Set up a Google Apps IMAP account.
