How do I "send as" my Berkeley email, from my personal email account



Before you begin (These steps are MANDATORY)

Please Note: You must be SIGNED OUT of your personal GMail account and be ONLY SIGNED INTO your BMAIL ACCOUNT when following these steps.

  1. Create a bConnected Key (Berkeley's version of the Google Key) if you have not already done so.
  2. Ensure your bConnected account "Access for less secure apps" is set to "Turn on":
  3. Ensure that there are no "login challenges" against your bConnected account :


If you have already configured your "Send mail as" settings, you can click "edit info", and begin with Step 3. If this does not work, you will need to "delete" the settings, and start with Step 1.




Step 1: Click on the gear icon in the top right corner of your personal gmail account, and then click settings.


Step 2: Click on the "Accounts and Import" tab, and then click on "Add another email address you own"


Step 3: Enter your name, and your email address. Ensure that the "Treat as an alias" box is checked, and click on "Next Step"




Step 4: Enter "" as the SMTP Server, and put your full Berkeley email address for the username. Be sure that you include the suffix. Enter your Google Key in the password box (do not copy and paste it). Then click "Add Account"


Step 5: You should see a window pop up that asks for you to confirm verification of your Berkeley email address.


Step 6: Open your Berkeley email account (in a separate browser, or private/incognito window), and either click on the link in the body of the verification email, or copy the confirmation code from the email into the window that previously popped up.


Step 7: Back on the "Settings" , "Accounts and Import" tab of your personal gmail account, you should now see your Berkeley email successfully added.
