POP & IMAP Access


R'Mail can be accessed via e-mail clients such as Thunderbird or Outlook. 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
In order to use a POP/IMAP email program with your R'Mail account you will first need to enable POP/IMAP access:

Log in to R'Mail

Click the Settings icon in the upper right corner that looks like a gear

Select Settings

Settings menu
Go to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab forwarding and pop imap tab

Enable IMAP and/or POP:

  • IMAP - Select Enable IMAP
  • POP - Select Enable POP for all mail

Click Save Changes

Setting Your Google Password
Your Google Password is your password for IMAP and/or POP access to your R'Mail account. This is separate from your UCR password which is used for web-based access to R'Mail.  To set your Google Password:

Go to http://password.ucr.edu

Use the second form on the Password Change page labeled Set Google Password:

  • Current UCR Password - your UCR NetID password that you use to log in to R'Mail through the web
  • New Google Password: This does not have to be the same as your UCR Net ID password, but must be at least 8 characters, have at least two letters, and have at least one non-alphabetic character

Click the "Set Google Password" button.
