The University of Akron is partnering with Google to provide a set of Google online services for UA students, with a single signon from the UA web site and a new lifetime @zips.uakron.edu email address. The Google Mail service (aka Gmail) is replacing the current student webmail system. Also included in the package are Google calendar, chat and document collaboration tools. The Google Apps services will be ad-free for current students.

==Q&A==
+
===What if I forward my mail somewhere else?===
+
 
+
You may continue to forward your mail to a different address but you will need to set that forwarding from the Gmail system. We will continue to provide a UAnet forwarding function until the the final cutover to the Gmail system on September 30. After that, all mail sent to your old @uakron.edu address will be automatically forwarded (for a time) to your new @zips.uakron.edu address at Google and it will no longer be possible to use the UAnet system to set forwarding options. Before that happens you will need to login to the Gmail site and set your forwarding option there. You can do this at any time after your Gmail account is created. If you don’t set your forwarding, and you don’t check your @zips.uakron.edu mail, then you run the risk of missing important mail messages. Also note that as of November 2 the auto-forwarding feature for your old @uakron.edu address will be turned off and mail sent to it will be bounced back to the sender.

<br>
===I used to be a student. Can I get a Google Apps at Akron account?===
+
To set up mail forwarding
 
+
# Log into http://mail.zips.uakron.edu
At this time accounts will only be provided to currently active students.
+
# Click /Select <b>Settings</b> in the upper right corner
<br>
+
# Click/Select <b>Forwarding and POP/IMAP</b>
===Can I move my address book from the current webmail system?===
+
# Click/Select <b>Forward a copy of incoming mail to <i>email address</i> and </b>
 
+
# Enter the forwarding mail address into the <b>email address</b> field
Your address book will be moved along with your messages from the old UA webmail system..
+
#* You can select an action for managing the email on the Google Apps server <br>”keep The University of Akron Mail’s copy in the Inbox” is the default setting
 
+
# Click/Select <b>Save Changes</b>
===Will Google have access to my password?===
+
[[Image:Mailforwardinggmail.jpg|700px]]
 
+
No. We are keeping your UAnet and Google Apps passwords in sync using a method that does not allow Google to know your password.
+
 
+
===How do I change my passwords?===
+
 
+
You can change your password at the UAnet account management web site.. We will synchronize your Google password with your UAnet ID password.
+
 
+
===Why aren't the staff and faculty accounts being converted?===
+
The decision to retain the in-house Exchange system for faculty and staff was based on a number of factors. Primarily, we decided that the risk created by giving up control of this critical communications system was more than we were willing to accept right now. There are too many concerns about privacy and security, especially regarding FERPA, intellectual property, and PII data. We are also concerned about records retention requirements for open records and e-discovery regulations. In addition, Google does not offer equivalent functionality to Exchange in terms of the tight integration among email, calendaring (including resources), and global address books.
+
 
+
We may revisit this issue at a future time.
