While the recommended way to access your MCA Gmail is from a browser (and the best browser for this is Chrome), some people may feel more comfortable using a true email client application. Instructions for setting up your mca.edu email address to work in Apple Mail or other mail clients using other Operating Systems can be found here:
If you wish to access your MCA Gmail from the Apple Mail program in OS X v10.5 (Leopard), follow the instructions here.
If you wish to access your MCA Gmail from the Apple Mail program in OS X v10.6 (Snow Leopard), 10.7 (Lion) or 10.8 (Mountain Lion), or other standard email applications follow the instructions here.
*(Choose I want to enable IMAP and then choose your client from the selection box that shows up below. There is no need to actually follow the steps to enable IMAP since that option has been enabled for all MCA accounts.)
**Remember to replace the ‘your_domain.com’ in the Google instructions with ‘mca.edu’ in the username fields.
