Use IMAP or POP clients

In addition to accessing Google Apps mail from the Gmail web interface, users can send and receive mail from their favorite desktop client. Depending on the client, they can use either the IMAP or POP mail protocol. Below is a list of clients you can use with Google Apps. (You may also be able to use clients that aren't listed here, too.)

To set one of these clients up, see Get started with IMAP and POP3.

Windows and Mac mail clients

  • Microsoft Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013
  • Outlook Express
  • Windows Mail
  • Apple Mail 3, 4, or 5
  • Thunderbird 3.0
Microsoft Outlook users can synchronize the mail, contacts, and calendars with Google Apps using Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook.
