To configure the Gmail app on an Android device for access to SOU Gmail, just follow these steps:
- Open the Settings app on your device
- Tap Accounts & Sync
- Tap Add Account
- Tap Google
- Tap Next and then tap Sign in
- Enter your account information, being sure to use your full SOU Gmail address, including '@sou.edu'
- Tap Sign In
- Select the items you would like to sync, make sure to tap Sync Gmail among anything else you would like to synchronize with your SOU Gmail account (contacts, calendar, etc.)
- Tap Finish
And you're done. If your account is not working, please reset your password here: http://account.sou.edu/
If you are still having problems, then make sure that IMAP is enabled in your email account, which is accessible by going to settings within Gmail.
Note: On Android devices, we recommend using the built-in Gmail app due to Gmails unique features that are not available in other Android mail clients (such as Mail or K-9).
