RMail for Faculty



Pop and IMAP Access


R'Mail can be accessed via e-mail clients. In order to access your R'Mail account with an e-mail client, you will need to enable IMAP or POP access in your R'Mail account, set your Google password, and configure your e-mail client. Enabling POP/IMAP will only enable email but will not include calendar sync.
