If you are setting up an email client (Outlook, Apple Mail, etc) or a phone (Blackberry, iPhone, etc) for Torero Mail, you must first turn on POP/IMAP access for your account.  To do this, visit and log in.  Click on Settings, then on “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” .  There, you can enable either POP or IMAP (if you're not sure which your email account uses, it is safe to enable both).


Google has posted instructions for configuring your device for Torero Mail, which you can find at  If these do not help you, you can use the manual settings listed below.


USERNAME: *username*
PASSWORD: Same password as MySanDiego
IMAP Server:
SMTP Server:
USE SPA (Secure Password Authentication): no


Yes - TLS
SMTP PORT: 465 or 587
