How do I setup my email, calendar and timetable on my Smartphone?
What if I’m using an application like Outlook to access my email?
Note: Before configuring the Google Mail account you need to sync your Google password via UCD Connect.
Important: For all applications 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: Your UCD Connect password.
If you are not automatically connected using the settings above use the following server settings in the Account settings (double click your account and choose More settings) section of Outlook:
IMAP server: imap.gmail.com
Require SSL: Yes
SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
Require SSL: Yes
Require SMTP authentication: Yes
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.
What Google apps do I have access to?
UCD students have access to a hosted integrated communication and collaboration suite which includes:
- Google Mail - with 30GB of email storage and an attachment size of 25 MB
- Google Calendar - Organize your schedule, get your class timetable in your calendar and share events and calendars
- Google Drive - Share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Collaborate in real-time with anyone you invite to join.
