New Email Sign-in Page Starts January 20, 2014

Effective January 20, Macalester's Google Apps sign-in page is changing. It will now look the same across all Google sign-in pages – for Macalester Google Apps and personal GMail accounts. This change will improve security and make it easier for you to switch between multiple Google accounts.

What the new Google sign-in page means for Macalester users:

  • Log into Google Apps and email with your full Macalester email address (example: username@macalester.edu) and password.
  • Continue to use just your username and password to log into other systems like 1600grand, Argos, Banner, and your computer.
  • Your password remains the same.
  • Update any email bookmarks to mail.google.com. Learn how to update your bookmarks.
This is not a scam.  Don't be surprised to no longer see the Macalester logo when you log in on Monday. You can now log into all of your Google accounts, including your personal Google account, through this one page.

If you need assistance, contact the ITS Help Desk at helpdesk@macalester.edu or 651-696-6525.
