The majority of students will not need these settings to set up Omail+ on a mobile device. Our student e-mail (Omail+) is through Google, so it is a Gmail account.  To add it to your mobile device, download the Gmail application and fill in the required information.

If you are unable to use the Gmail application to set up your Omail+, here are the settings that Google suggests:

  1. Enable IMAP in your Gmail settings.
  2. On your phone, press Home, then open the Email application.
  3. On the Your accounts page, select Next to get started with setup.
  4. Enter your full Omail+ address and password, then select Next.
  5. On the next screen, you can give the account a nickname and choose the name to display on your outgoing messages. Tap Done.

Verify your settings from the Inbox view by tapping < Menu > > Account settings.

Incoming settings
IMAP server: imap.gmail.com
Port: 993
Security type: SSL (always)
Outgoing settings
SMTP server: smtp.gmail.com
Port: 465
Security type: SSL (always)

If you have problems connecting to your student email  (Safari Errors)

Some issues have been reported when users only have the Safari browser installed.

  1. If you are trying to set up your gmail and get a error mentioning Safari, You will need to download the Google Chrome browser App (if not already installed)
  2. Add/sign into your student email account using the Chrome browser.
  3. Once you’re able to access your OMail using Chrome your account should appear the next time you open the GMail app. 

If you are unable to use the Gmail application on your Apple iPhone to set up your Omail+, go to: 

  • Settings/Accounts & Passwords
  • Add Account
  • Select Google
  • Type in your Omail address:  firstname_lastname@student.owens.edu and click <Next>
  • Enter your Username/Password at the Owens CAS portal, and click <Submit>
  • Click <Save>
  • Your Omail account should now be setup and accessible using the default email app on the iPhone.
