Enable IMAP for your Umail account

Umail is only for former students who do not have an active status (for example, faculty, staff) and who separated from IU prior to March 11, 2018; see About the Umail upgrade. Current students use Gmail at IU. If you're unsure about what type of account you have, contact your campus Support Center.
About Umail at IU (former students only) is scheduled to be retired on November 19, 2019. Once the service is discontinued, you will no longer be able to access your Umail account and its associated services (such as email, Drive files, Sites).

To enable IMAP for your Umail account:

  1. Log into Umail using a web browser.
  2. At the top right of the Umail interface, click the gear icon and choose Settings; select Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
  3. In the "IMAP Access:" section, for "Status:", select Enable IMAP.
  4. Click Save Changes.
It may take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect.
