This tutorial demonstrates how to configure an iOS device for CU-Boulder's Gmail.
To be able to send email succesfully, be sure to follow the instructions until the very end.
Screenshots are from an iPad. Steps apply to all three devices.
You may need to enable IMAP for your account prior to configuration of your email client (gmail.colorado.edu). To do this:
Enter the following account information:
If you entered your account information properly, you'll see that your account was verified. Now you can turn Mail, Contacts Calendars, and Notes on or off (when selected the color will be green).
Your configuration is not done yet. Follow the next steps to ensure that you can send email through this account.
Back in the Mail, Contacts, Calendars menu in Settings, tap on the account you just created.
In the Outgoing Mail Server, you need to make sure that smtp.colorado.edu is entered. Your account settings may say No Server, or it may say smtp.gmail.com.
To change this, first tap on SMTP. Next, look through the list of SMTP Servers and if you see smtp.colorado.edu, make sure that it is the only SMTP server that is turned On. If this is complete, skip to step 12.
If you do not see smtp.colorado.edu in the list, tap Add Server.
Enter the following information in the Add Server fields:
Make sure that smtp.colorado.edu is set to On (when selected the color will be green), then tap Done.
Back in the list of SMTP Servers, you should see smtp.colorado.edu. Make sure that it is the only SMTP server that is turned On.
Your account should now be configured properly and you should see your account listed in your Mail app.
