Access UCD Email on your iPhone or iPad (Staff)

Last Updated: 17/05/13

Follow these steps to set up your UCD e-mail on an iPhone or iPad device

Important! Before configuring the Google Mail account you need to do the following:

Set a password in Google via UCD Connect.

  1. Click on the mail icon in Connect and then click on your email address at the top right of the page 
  2. Select Account > Security > Change password
  3. You'll be asked to verify your Connect password. You can then set a password (or match it with your Connect one)
  4. Click 'Update Google Apps password' 

Note: Your username is your full email address and your password is the password you set via UCD Connect

Note: These setup instructions are for Apple devices running software version 4.0.

To configure the 'Mail' app on an Apple device for access to Google Apps email, just follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your device
  2. Tap Mail, Contacts, Calendars
  3. Tap Add Account...
  4. Tap Gmail
  5. Enter your account information, being sure to use your full UCD email address
  6. Tap Next
  7. Tap Save

If you already had your UCD calendar on your iPhone it may appear twice. Simply click the Calendars button at the top-left of the calendar to hide unwanted calendars.

Return to the Home screen and open Mail to see if the email account has been set up correctly.
