Last Updated:  3/21/13 5:59:42 PM 8373-8193-436

There are a few things you should do first before beginning:

Note: The password you set at the above website is independent of your normal ASURITE password. If you change your ASURITE password in the future, your Gmail for ASU POP/Chat password will not be changed. However, you may always go to the above website to change your Gmail for ASU POP/Chat password.

After you have successfully enabled IMAP on your Gmail account and set your Gmail for ASU POP/Chat password, use these steps to set up Outlook 2007:

Step 1. Navigate to the Control Panel by clicking on Start and then click on Control Panel. Locate and open the Mail Icon.



Note: The location of the Mail icon within the Control Panel may vary for each computer.

Step 2. Click on the "Show Profiles..." button.

 

Step 3. Select Prompt for a profile to be used then click on the "Add" button.

 

Step 4. Enter the name you would like this profile to be called and then click "OK."

Step 5. Select Manually configure sever settings or additional server types and click the "Next" button.

 

Step 6. Select Internet E-mail and click "Next."

 

Step 7. Enter the following information on the Email Settings screen.

  • Enter your name into the Your Name field
  • Enter your e-mail address into the E-mail Address field (this is usually ASURITE UserID@asu.edu)
  • Select IMAP for the Account Type
  • Enter imap.gmail.com into the Incoming Mail Server field
  • Enter smtp.gmail.com into the Outgoing Mail Server field
  • Enter ASURITE UserID@asu.edu into the User Name field
    For example, if your ASURITE UserID is rsmith then you would enter rsmith@asu.edu into the User Name field.
  • Enter your Gmail for ASU POP/Chat password that you had previously set up into the Password field
  • Click on the "More Settings..." button

 

Step 8. Click on the Advanced tab.

  • Ensure Incoming sever(IMAP) reads 993
  • Select SSL for the Encrypted connection
  • Ensure Outgoing sever(SMTP) reads 587
  • Select TLS for the Encrypted connection

Step 9. Click on the Outgoing Server tab.

  • Check the box for My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication
  • Select the Use same settings as my incoming mail server option
  • Click on "OK"

Step 10. Click on "Next" then click on the "Finish" button. You can now securely send and receive mail using Outlook 2007.
