ITS recommends using only mobile apps created and supported by Google to connect to U-M Google accounts. You can also use a mobile web browser like Chrome or Safari. Using third-party apps (i.e. apps created by a group or company other than Google) can lead to unexpected results, including loss of data.
You are not restricted from signing in and/or using third-party mail clients or apps (e.g., Apple Mail, Microsoft Outlook, etc.) with your U-M Gmail account. However, ITS does not provide configuration assistance or additional support for using any third-party mail clients other than Mozilla Thunderbird. (Google also does not support the use of third-party clients.) For more information, refer to Third-Party Mail Clients or Apps and U-M Google Mail.
