You can retrieve your Google Apps messages with a client or device that supports POP, like Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail. First you need to enable POP for your account prior to configuration of your email client. To do this:

Visit http://apps.channelplay.in & enable IMAP in your Google Apps settings

  1. Sign in to Gmail.
  2. Click the gear in the top right.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
  5. Select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
  6. Choose what to do with your messages after your POP client or device receives them.
  7. Click Save Changes.

Although the radio button next to your selected option may not stay selected, Gmail displays the status next to 'POP Status:' When you enable POP, your settings display 'POP Status: POP is enabled.'

If your POP settings are turned off, the status will indicate that POP is disabled.

Once you've enabled POP in your Gmail settings, you need to configure your client. Select a client below to see specific configuration instructions.


Apple Mail

  1. Open your Apple Mail client.
  2. Click Mail > Preferences...
  3. On the Accounts tab, click the + button to add a new account.
  4. Fill in the window with the following information:
  • Full Name: [your name]
  • Email Address: your full email address [someone@channelplay.in]
  • Password: your Gmail password

  • Important: Apple Mail will attempt to setup IMAP, click Continue to change the Account Type to POP and then use the following information to confirm your POP configuration.
  • If you're setting up POP for the first time, confirm your settings to make sure they're correct. Then click Ok, confirm my settings

    smtp.gmail.com
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
