Un conjunto de herramientas de comunicación y colaboración de Google, específico para entornos de educación (G Suite for Education) y personalizado para la Universidad de Almería.

Email

Email for ASP and RTS

You'll still use an @ual.es account. Your G Suite will be username@ual.es, where "username" is your Virtual Campus username.

Email for students

Your G Suite account will be your Virtual Campus username plus @inlumine.ual.es. Example: username@inlumine.ual.es

Gmail

The University of Almería recommends managing email with the web browser by connecting to correo.ual.es. This means you can access your email from any computer or mobile device and it will always be updated to the latest version of the reader without the need for any type of installation.

Generic set-up

Configuración GenéricaIf you use another desktop email client such as Apple Mail, etc., you can continue using it with Gmail, as it's compatible with POP and IMAP mail protocols. You just have to reconfigure your email manager in a few simple steps:

  • Incoming mail server (IMAP) - requires SSL
    • imap.gmail.com
    • Port: 993
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Authentication type: OAuth2
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - requires TLS 
    • smtp.gmail.com
    • Port: 465 (for SSL) or 587 (for TLS/STARTTLS)
    • Requires authentication: Yes
    • Authentication type: OAuth2
  • Full name: (your name) 
  • Account or username: your full address (username@ual.es for ASP/RTS; username@inlumine.ual.es for students)
  • Email address: your full address (username@ual.es for ASP/RTS; username@inlumine.ual.es for students) 
  • Password: your Virtual Campus password. 

However, if you want to access your messages via POP (if you want to read this account via another Gmail account), you must set it up as follows:

  • Incoming mail server (POP) - requires SSL
    • pop.gmail.com
    • Port: 995
    • Requires SSL: Yes
