Setting up your Google App (IMAP) email with Entourage Mac

With DzineClub hosting plans, most of the times we set you up with a Google App account. This allows you to access emails via a Gmail interface and also set up your email on Outlook, Entourage, Apple Mail, Mozilla Thunderbird etc

To set up your Account please use the following steps

Go to Tools > Accounts

Click New Mail

Click “Configure Account Manually” down the bottom

Select IMAP from the Account Type and Click OK

Account Setings

  • Account Name > your email address
  • Personal Information
    Name > Your Name
    Email Address > your email address
  • Receiving Mail
    Account ID> your email address
    IMAP Server> imap.gmail.com
    Password > Your password
    Click on CLick here for advanced receiving options and select “This IMAP service requires a secure connection (SSL) > Close this window
  • Sending Mail
    SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
    Click on Click here for advanced sending options buttons and select
    SMTP service requires a secure connection(SSL)
    Override default SMTP port and enter 587
    SMTP Server requires authentication (Use same settings as receiving mail server)
    Close this small window
    Click OK on the main window.
    You will be prompted to log into your email account. Enter your account password (if not there already), save password and click on OK.

This should set up your DzineClub Hosting email account into your Entourage System. We will put up more docs going forward on how to set up your email with Thunderbird, Outlook, iphone etc.

    Thanks, I looked at 15 or better instructions for setting up entourage for my google standard app. Yours was the only one that mention checking off required SSL in the incoming mail setup. I had a sneaky suspicion that it needed to be, but wasn’t sure. Once you mentioned it, all was happy. I have about a dozen of clients who will be switching their accounts to Google apps and it’s nice to know how to help them.

    Thanks again.
