Below is a list of mail clients and mobile devices you can synchronize with your Google Apps for Education email account. Click the name of your mobile or mail client device to see instructions for setting it up to work with Gmail.

If your client or device isn't listed here, we suggest that you try out the general instructions for all other clients.


1. In all of the setup instructions, username, where indicated, is your full email address.

**** As clarification, related to the instructions provided through the iPhone link above, please select the "Gmail" setup on your iPhone (step 5) rather than "Other".
