Configuring Android 5.0 and up for UTmail+


Please note: When you log in to UTmail+ through a web browser, your login is managed by the University of Toronto. Any means of accessing the UTmail+ service other than through a web browser will securely transmit your UTORid and password through Microsoft’s systems.

Android 5.0 and up uses the Gmail app to display all email acounts. Your device might have slightly different labels and screens from those shown below. Contact the Help Desk at help.desk@utoronto.ca or at 416-978-4357 if you have any questions.

  1. Before you set up your mobile device to access UTmail+, you must verify your UTORid (you will only need to do this once). Go to https://www.utorid.utoronto.ca/ and click on verify under Problems with your UTORid?.
