Set Up Email Clients for Your Google Workspace Account

We strongly recommend that you work with your Cornell Workspace (formerly G Suite) email using Google's web interface at This method requires no setup and, as long as you keep your browser up to date, will require no maintenance on your part.

We recognize that some users may prefer another method, so we're providing basic configuration information for a few clients/devices here.

For all devices, for email address, user, or username, use your address. For password, use the one associated with your NetID.

Cornell Google Workspace accounts for faculty and staff require use of Google's 2-Step Verification.

Not all email apps support Google's 2-Step Verification.

The workaround is to use Google's App Passwords.

We do not recommend configuring Microsoft Outlook to work with your Google Workspace account. The necessary steps are quite complicated and future changes by either Microsoft or Google could stop your email from working. CIT does not support this configuration.
