Updated for Google Workspace’s admins for IMAP/POP management easier in your organization.
New updated from Google for Google Workspace’s admins about IMAP/POP. You can now manage IMAP and POP settings separately on the Admin Console.
Google just separated the setting functions on the Admin Console for turning on/off IMAP and POP for support who are admins easier to manage, also users can use the functions better.
Additionally, this update has added an option for more secure of your data and users which is “Restrict which mail clients users can use (OAuth mail clients only)” for block users to sign in some applications that are less secure. In case, you have a policy for users to use email applications via devices and need more secure.
How to use this setting
For admins you can set this from Admin Console which you can follow these steps below:
– On the Admin Console, go to “Apps”.
– Go on “Google Workspace” and select ”Gmail”.
– Click on “End User Access”.
– Admin can select to turn on/off the “IMAP and POP access” function and click “SAVE”.
