Mail Clients

If you don’t want to use the Cmail web interface, you can use a mail client instead. Instructions for setting up various mail clients are available below.

Laptop/Desktop Users

Please check Google’s list of supported e-mail clients and follow the instructions listed for your client. If you wish to try manual setup for an unlisted client, use the settings below:

  • Incoming Server: imap.gmail.com
  • Outgoing Server: smtp.gmail.com
  • username: username@g.cofc.edu
  • Password: Your password
  • Incoming Server Port: 993
  • Encryption type: SSL (Some call it StartTLS)
  • Outgoing Server Port: 587
  • Encryption type: TLS

Mobile Devices

Cmail is supported by Google and works just like a Google account for apps like Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive. To use Gmail or other Google service from your phone or tablet, simply download the appropriate app from your app store and login using your full e-mail address (e.g. username@g.cofc.edu)
