2 New Ways to Access Macalester Email and Google Apps

On Wednesday, January 9, 2013, Macalester's Email and Google Apps login page is changing.

The new login page will:
  • Work better across all Google services.
  • Allow access to Macalester Email and Google Apps, even when Macalester's network is unavailable.
Starting on Wednesday morning, you may use two new ways to access your Macalester email: mail.google.com/a/macalester.edu and www.gmail.com.

New way #1: Go to mail.google.com/a/macalester.edu. Enter your Macalester username and password. Click Sign in.



New way #2: Go to www.gmail.com. Enter your full Macalester email address (username@macalester.edu) as Username. Enter your password. Click Sign in.


Connections to email via mobile devices remain unchanged. However, if you log into email using a mobile web browser, use one of the two new ways. Current links to access Google Apps will continue to work, too.

Replace any Google Apps bookmarks with: mail.google.com/a/macalester.edu. Read more about bookmark basics.

Contact the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@macalester.edu or 651-696-6265 with any questions.
