Changes for connecting email clients to Gmail and BroncoMail

Boise State Office of Information Technology is improving security for the campus community by making changes to how non-Google email clients, such as Outlook and Mac Mail, connect to Boise State Gmail accounts.

The post office protocol, or POP, will no longer work for connecting to Boise State email accounts as of November 1, 2022.

Those currently using internet message access protocol, or IMAP, with Outlook or macOS Mail will likely not need to take any action.

Users who encounter any issues connecting to a BroncoMail account on or after November 1 can visit the Office of Information Technology’s website to learn how to adjust their email client’s configuration to ensure continued connection to BroncoMail.

Students, faculty, and staff may also use a mobile app to access their university email accounts, or a web browser to access Gmail through myBoiseState.

For questions or assistance, please contact the Boise State Help Desk at (208) 426-4357 or email
