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.
You will need to be running a version of Outlook that supports the more-modern “OAuth” authentication methods.
These versions of Outlook support OAuth:
- Outlook for Office 365
- Outlook 2019
- Outlook 2016
- Outlook 2016 volume licensed version with Windows Installer (MSI) does not support OAuth.
- When you connect your Gmail account to Outlook, you might get a warning message in your inbox telling you that a new sign in was detected. This is expected behavior.
