Changes for Connecting Email Clients to BroncoMail

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

Current IMAP protocol users using Outlook or macOS Mail will unlikely need to take any action.

If you encounter any issues connecting to your BroncoMail account on or after November 1, please visit the Office of Information Technology’s website to learn how to adjust your 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
