Important Note

Third-party email clients are not supported by UC Berkeley. The instructions here are provided only as a reference. 

If you have further questions, please contact the vendor of your third party email client. UC Berkeley bMail accounts are standard Gmail accounts, so any instructions you find referencing Gmail should work with bMail.

Outlook (Direct)

You will need to be running a version of Outlook that supports the more-modern “OAuth” authentication methods. 

These versions of Outlook support OAuth:

Check what version of Outlook you have.
