Here we provide the instructions for Gmail backup.

Gmail backup:

  • Confirm your Google Gmail account and password
  • Sign in to Gmail, go to [Accounts and Import] webpage via [settings], and [Add a mail account]


  • Enter the [Email Address] to receive the backup, [Username], and [password]. Then enter and verify the [Confirmation Code] in the verification letter sent to NTU mail by Gmail.
