Google provides documentation for all Google-supported email clients. Virginia Tech provides basic client settings, but does not endorse or provide additional support for email clients. 4Help recommends you access VT Google Apps Mail with a Web browser by following the instructions at Checking or Viewing Your VT Google Apps Mail Email.
To configure a client to access your VT Google Apps Mail using Google's documentation:
The basic client settings for VT Google Apps Mail are:
Important: The account name or user name in Google's instructions for configuring clients is referred to as firstname.lastname@example.org. Instead, you will always use [Your PID]@vt.edu. Replace [Your PID] with your own PID.
Important: The password for accessing your VT Google Apps Mail using a client is the Google password that you created when you set up the Google email account. If you have forgotten your password, see Changing or Resetting Your VT Google Apps Account Password.
Note: If you are repeatedly prompted for your user name and password or if you are getting errors such as "Invalid credentials" or "Web login required", follow the instructions at Using Captcha when Repeatedly Prompted for Credentials or Receiving "invalid credentials" or "web login required" when Accessing VT Google Apps Mail.
