I'm trying to set up pop/imap for a google hosted email domain.


My girlfriend goes to Augustana College here in illinois. Their email is hosted thru google pages. I'm trying to set up her mail for her thunderbird/blackberry(if I can convince her to get one) but I'm not really sure on the settings. Iv e read a lot online, but nothing has been very clear. Is there any "always use" settings for pop, or do I just need trial and error type of thing

1) Setup GMail to allow for IMAP.

For this step use an email account that blackberry can not detect automatically.

2) Enter your email kname at yourdomain.co.uk
3) Enter an incorrect password (or correct one if this doesn't work)

It should go to processing, please wait. It will take a while but should come back asking you to change your password because it is incorrect or it can't detect the settings.

It will ask you to re-enter your email and password but there is an option for "I will provide the settings to add this email account."

From here you can set up your personal or work email

4) Select Personal then next
5) Select I will provide the settings ..... then select next
6) Enter the details

User name: name at yourgdomain.com
Password: ********
Email Server: imap.googlemail.com
Email address: name at yourgdomain.com

On Next it will work out the rest.
