The VCCS utilizes Google's gmail for @email.vccs.edu e-mail accounts.
If your device has an option for setting up a new "gmail" or "Google" account, choose that option and enter your VCCS username and password.
If your device does not have a "gmail" or "Google" account option, your e-mail account might still be able to be accessed using POP. You must first log into your @email.vccs.edu account using a web browser and enable "POP" in your account's settings. Google has several tutorials about how to setup your device to communicate with your @email.vccs.edu e-mail: Google POP Tutorials
