Question: What Are the Gmail POP3 Settings?

Looking for the Gmail POP3 server settings?

Answer: The Gmail POP3 server settings for accessing incoming messages in any email program are:

  • Gmail POP server address: pop.gmail.com
  • Gmail POP user name: Your full Gmail address (example@gmail.com, for example)
  • Gmail POP password: Your Gmail password
  • Gmail POP port: 995
  • Gmail POP TLS/SSL required: yes

Note that POP access needs to be enabled in Gmail for these settings to work

To send mail through Gmail from any email program, see the Gmail SMTP server settings. Note, also, that, as an alternative to POP3 access, you can access Gmail using IMAP.

For detailed instructions on setting up Gmail POP3 in your email program or service, see
