Other Notes

  •  UCAR Google Apps Support Site
  • UCAR recommends using a browser for access to Google Mail.  IMAP will work but will not give you access to a large part of what's offered at https://mail.google.com
  • ACOM's official IMAP client is Mozilla Thunderbird.  You may use the settings above to configure other IMAP clients, but we do not offer support for those other clients.
  • The Macintosh Mail client has had a long history of IMAP issues and other usability issues with ACOM hosted email.  While some have gotten the Mail client to work with Google, it implements IMAP improperly and may be unstable.
  • You may use IMAP clients such as Thunderbird to connect to both ACOM's IMAP service and Google's.  You might want to do this if you want access to mail folders which are archived on ACOM's servers but haven't been copied to Google's.  Note that ACOM's IMAP service may be discontinued at some point in time - when that occurs, we will help you transition your archived mail to Google.
