Steps for Setting up Your iPad to Receive eMail

We recommend students set up their SSCC GA4E or personal email account on their iPad by choosing the the following options:
  1. SETTINGS (app)
  2. Mail, Contacts, Calendars (icon)
  3. Add Account
  4. Gmail
  5. type in the student's full name, Example: John Doe
  6. type in the student's preferred Gmail account JDoe3813@gmail.com or their SSCC GA4E student email address (you can make as many accounts as you like in this system)
  7. type in their email password
  8. type in a logical name for this account. Example: Personal Gmail (or) SSCC Google Apps for Education Email
  9. click the NEXT button (the system will authenticate/verify the account)
    • if a "Cannot Connect Using SSL" dialog box appears, choose YES
    • if a "IMAP server "imap.gmail.com" is not responding ... " dialog box appears, be sure you have a good network connection (wifi or 3g) and try again.
    • If the student is on campus, they'll need to sign to the campus network (using Wifi) on their iPad.
  10. Once authenticated, the student will see a final screen listing Mail, Calendar and Notes (icons) and clicks the SAVE button.
