IMAP/POP Setup for Faculty/Staff GVSU mail
These instructions are for devices that do not support a direct connection to Microsoft Exchange.
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 [email protected] to have your GVSU faculty/Staff account activated to use these protocols.
Incoming server settings
username (not email address)

POP**: pop.exchange.gvsu.edu Port #: 995 Protocol: ssl
Outgoing server settings

*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 https://mail.outlook.gvsu.edu for most devices.
