ACU Email Overview
How do I setup an e-mail client to check my e-mail?
Have you ever wanted to be notified as soon as you receive an email without having to log in to myACU? Using an e-mail client to check your e-mail can give you that ability along with several other great features.
- Windows - Outlook
- Macintosh - Mail.app
- iPhone - Mail
- If you choose to setup another e-mail client, use the following information:
- Incoming Mail Server: imap.gmail.com
- Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.gmail.com
- Select IMAP as your e-mail type
- Use your e-mail address as the username when requested in the set-up process.
Email Problems - If you get an error message saying your credentials are invalid or if you have followed the instructions, but your e-mail will not download from Google, try unlocking your account by visiting this page.
How can I set my ACU e-mail address to forward my e-mail to a different account?
You can forward your incoming ACU e-mail to another e-mail account under the "Mail" link in myACU. This will log you into your Gmail account. Click on "Settings" in the left-hand corner of the page and select the link that says "Forwarding and POP." Now click on the option that says "Forward a copy of incoming mail to" and enter the e-mail address you wish to receive the forwarded e-mails. Click the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page.
Why am I getting spam now?
Now that Google is filtering the spam messages instead of Ironports (ACU's previous spam filtering system), much of what was blocked and eliminated before is now put in the Gmail Spam folder. Learn more about what you need to do by visiting our spam webpage. You must have iTunes to view these files.
