All students are encouraged to use their Google Apps for Education (Jetmail) account as their official Newman email. If you desire, you can forward messages from your Gmail account to another email account. Keep in mind that if you do forward your email to an external account, we can guarantee neither delivery nor receipt of your correspondence. To learn more, click into this post and then on this link or visit our Gmail-Get Started page and look under Quickstarts.
If you are using multiple email accounts on your computer, you may have an issue when moving between the two. Google does allow you to use multiple Gmail accounts, but you need to be aware of possible password issues. When you log into a non-Newman gmail account and select the "Keep me logged in" option, your login information is held on your local machine whether you have your browser open or not. That way when you open your browser again you won't have to log into Gmail again. That works fine on a personal machine. However, if you try to log into your Newman email from the same machine, Google may use the wrong username and password. You have a couple of options. First, you can always log out of one Gmail account before logging into another. Second, you can tell Google that you are using multiple accounts so the software can check for both. To set up your machine for this second option, follow the link below.
