The University of Minnesota Morris is moving to Gmail! Since 2010, Morris students, faculty, and staff have transitioned from our old email servers to a new Gmail service hosted by Google. This gives the campus more flexibility and options in managing email and connecting with others.
During Summer 2012, alumni and retired staff & faculty are invited to move their lifelong email accounts into the University’s Gmail service. It’s an easy process. Visit the My Account page, and after a few clicks in “Google Account Options”, all your email will migrate to Gmail automatically.
Your email address does not change when you move to Gmail. You still keep your same @morris.umn.edu email address, and your connection to Morris!
While we recommend the Gmail web interface, you can also set up a desktop email client like Thunderbird, Eudora, MacMail, or any other email program to access your Gmail account. Just set a Desktop/Mobile client password at the My Account page. It’s also easy to set up an iPad or smartphone to use Gmail!
Along with email, the University’s Google Apps includes Gmail, Calendar, Google Docs (now “Google Drive”), Google Sites, and the Google+ social network.
