How do I setup my email, calendar and timetable on my Smartphone?

Take a minute to set a password in Google via UCD Connect. To do this, click on your email address at the top right of the page > Account > Security > Change password. You'll be asked to verify your Connect password. You can then set a password (or match it your Connect one) and click 'Update Google Apps password'.

You can now setup your email and calendars on your smartphone.

Important: For all devices the information is as follows:

Email address: Your @ucdconnect.ie address (even where it says your Gmail address)

Username: Your @ucdconnect.ie email address

Password: The password you set in Google via UCD Connect

The specific instructions for various Smartphones are here:

Will Spam be filtered so it doesn't come to my UCD account?                 

Yes, the University will use the standard security options provided by Google to minimize any Spam being delivered to your mailbox. We recommend checking the Spam folder in your email account on a regular basis to ensure that valid messages are not being flagged as Spam. No ads will appear in the UCD implementation of Google products.

Google Mail Help                  

If you have a specific question about how to use the new email, go to the top right corner of your Inbox and you will see a Help link. On the Help page, you can browse the categories or type your problem into the search box.
