Gmail is the Google-powered email service. Gmail can be accessed via the web client or desktop and mobile native clients. To get started using Gmail, you must create a GoogleApps@UIC account.

When you're going to be away from your email for an extended period of time, you can use the auto-reply filter to automatically respond to your incoming email to inform senders that you're away, when you'll be back, and perhaps let them know who they can get in touch with for help while you're gone. 

Personal email addresses at UIC are of the form netID@uic.edu. Units, departments, and other entities on campus often have need of task-oriented email addresses that should not be identified publicly with a specific person. The ACCC provides several options for these department, group, and otherwise non-personal email addresses.

  • Want to get away from logging in all the time, but still use your trusty pine interface?

Google has good information on using Google Calendar on their support page.

Everyone at UIC has a UIC email address of the form: netID@uic.edu. For Ada Byron, whose student netID is abyron1, this is: abyron1@uic.eduThis is an important email address, because all official UIC email will be sent to it. But it is just an email address; there isn't an email account to go with it. At some point or other, you will have to select an actual email account to receive and manage your netID@uic.edu email.

Will your netID@uic.edu email go to your Google Apps at UIC account?

Email clients, including pine, Webmail, and GoogleApps@UIC, allow you to use addressbooks for those you email most often. Unfortunately, they all use their own formats for these addressbooks, so you can not readily share that information between your email programs if you use more than one.

Google Sites allow you to create Web sites to share information with your choice of people.

Google Groups cannot have calendars of their own, but you can create a subcalendar in your GoogleApps@UIC account for the group and share that with your group:

GoogleApps@UIC has multiple ways that it can be accessed depending on your needs.

The easiest way to import contacts into Gmail is to export your contacts from your old email client into a comma-delimited file, and then import the contents of the comma-delimited file into GoogleApps@UIC.

You can "import" or "subscribe" your UICalendar calendar into any calendar that supports iCal calendar feeds. You can do this once, to move from UICalendar to another calendaring system, or you can use it just to display your UICal calendar in another calendar program or device.

There isn't a specific tool to transfer all your data from UICalendar to your Google Calendar, but it is easy to get data from UICal into Google Calendar. You can either:
