New Account Instructions

Google Apps users can use any mail client that supports the POP or IMAP protocol to download their mail. We recommend IMAP for most users. POP is easy to setup, but lacks the advanced features of IMAP. IMAP is much more powerful and is ideal when you want to access your mail simultaneously from multiple locations or devices - but it can be a little more difficult to get working just the way you need. Google has published a quickstart guide that provides a good overview of IMAP and its capabilities.

Remember that you always access your mail from any computer with internet access via WebMail.
