Email Client Settings

Information Technology recommends checking your Email using the Web at www.email.wm.edu .  However, for those students who prefer to use an email client we have provided settings with a link to setup instructions provided by Google.

Use the following settings when configuring an Email Client (e.g.. Outlook) for POP/IMAP.  View a list of supported clients and instructions for configuring them.

  3. Select Settings.
  4. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
  5. Select Enable POP/IMAP.
