Note for Email Clients

We recommend strongly that you process your email on a Web browser rather than a desktop client!

Browser processing ensures that you experience the full benefits of Google Apps and you have our Help Desk staff to give you full support and assistance with browser-related questions and issues.

If you choose to continue to use a desktop client, the instructions below will get you set up using Thunderbird, Outlook, or Apple Mail.

Note: To use a desktop client, you must first enable IMAP via the settings in the Web interface; see Enable IMAP for Device Syncing above for instructions.
