Basic Authentication Transition Guidance for Gmail POP Users

If you have configured a personal non-Chicago gmail account to continuously fetch your UChicago email via gmail’s POP function for external accounts, then do the following:

Step by Step Instructions

  • Open a web browser and log in to the personal Gmail account at https://gmail.com
  • Click on the gear icon near the upper right hand corner of the web page
  • Click on “See all settings”
  • Click on “Accounts and Import” tab
  • Scroll down to “Check mail from other accounts”
  • Remove the UChicago account from there.

Now set up forwarding in O365 to the private Gmail account:

  • Log in to https://outlook.office365.com
  • Click on the gear icon toward the upper right hand corner of the web page
  • Click on View All Outlook settings
  • Click on Forwarding
  • Enable forwarding and type in the email address to which you’d like to have your UChicago email forwarded. Ensure you click the Save button when you’re done.
