Faculty/staff GVSU email setup for IMAP/POP

These instructions are for devices that do not support a direct connection to Microsoft Exchange.

We recommended using the web client at http://mail.outlook.gvsu.edu for most devices.
IMAP/POP setup is not recommended for computers running Windows 7 and above or Mac 10.6 and above.
IMAP/POP will only synchronize email to your device. Your calendar, contacts, and task lists will not be synced to your device.

If you would like to use IMAP/POP please contact Computer Authorizations at auth@gvsu.edu  to have your GVSU faculty/Staff account activated to use these protocols.

 

IMAP/POP Settings

   
Incoming server settings   Port #  Protocol
IMAP*: imap.exchange.gvsu.edu 993  ssl
POP**: pop.exchange.gvsu.edu 995  ssl
       
Outgoing server settings      
SMTP: smtp-auth.exchange.gvsu.edu   STARTTTL

*IMAP - If your device has the option, we recommend that you set how many days email is locally stored. This will conserve space on your device

**POP (not recommended)  Downloads the content of your email to your device potentially consuming a great deal of space and removing it from your online Outlook account.

We recommended using the web client at http://mail.outlook.gvsu.edu for most devices.
