Step 1) In your new ASIT gmail settings, click the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab, and under “IMAP” access, check the “enable IMAP” radio button, then click ‘save changes’.

Step 2) In your account settings, under ‘connected apps and sites’, toggle the ‘allow less secure apps’ to ON.

Use the following IMAP settings for connecting to ASIT email server:
