Last Updated: Feb 16, 2019 07:56AM UTC

Are you having trouble setting up your Google Business Email on your mobile device or with another email client? We have included instructions below on how to connect the Business Email to a few third-party clients below. 

 

iPhone or other iOS devices:

Follow the steps below to set up Google Business Email on your iPhone:

Step 1: Open up the “Settings” app on your iOS device, and go to the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" section (sometimes named just “Mail”). 

Step 2: Select "Add Account".

Step 3: From there, choose “Microsoft Exchange” as the type of account (do not choose “Google”).

Step 4: Type in your Google Business Email address under “Mail”. Then, re-enter your Google Business Email address under “Username” (including the @yourdomainname). 

Step 5: Enter your password and give this email account any description that you like, such as "Business Email".

Step 6: Press the “Next” button at the top of the screen. At this point, you may see a message appear saying “Unable to Verify Certificate”—if this appears, just hit “cancel”. Type m.google.com in the "Server" box that appears at the top of the screen. 

Step 7: Then tap “Next”. Your email is now connected to your iOS device successfully!
