Setting up your (or other Google G Suite) account in Apple Mail

Setting up an,,, or (Google GSuite) account in Apple Mail is a two part process.

Note: If you have enabled 2-Step Verification on your G Suite account, you cannot use your normal email account password in the instructions below. You will need to set up an app-specific password and use that as your password when setting up your account. First, enable IMAP settings on your G Suite account.

  1. Log in to your G Suite account.
  2. In the upper right corner click the Gear icon, then click Settings.
  3. Under the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab, select Enable IMAP.
Next, open Apple Mail.
  1. Select Mail > Add Account...
  2. Click the Google radio button and click Continue
  3. Enter your full G Suite email address and click Next.
  4. Enter your account password and click Next.
  5. Choose which Google apps you want Apple Mail to use, and click Done.
