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. 

GoogleApps@UIC is a suite of tools used for communication and collaboration. It includes Gmail, Google Drive, Google Sites, Google Groups and Google Calendar.

Audience: Faculty, Staff, Students

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.

In addition to the web clients, you can also access your GoogleApps@UIC account through native desktop and mobile clients. 

The amount of time required to migrate your mail will vary depending on the number of messages and personal folders to be copied. If you don’t need all your old emails, you can skip step 3 and forward only what you need. Be careful in selecting what to migrate because on January 31, your old email will be deleted from the server.

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:

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

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.

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?

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

Have you been using pine on tigger to manage your uic.edu email?

  • Want to get away from logging in all the time, but still use your trusty pine interface?
  • Want to be able to use pine and still save attachments directly to your personal computer?
  • Want to use pine to read your GoogleApps@UIC email?

You can do all of these things with the personal computer versions of Alpine. (The "pine" on tigger has been the newer Alpine for many years. It's the same thing.)

This page is a very brief introduction to Groups in GoogleApps@UIC.  

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

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:

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.

Yes. You should receive all listserv messages in your new GoogleApps@UIC account as long as you are subscribed to the listserv using:

Use the Report Spam button to let Google know if you received junk email or a spoofed message.

If you think that your email account has been compromised, contact security@uic.edu. Please include the header of the suspicious message and the entire message text.

If you already have a gmail.com Google account and want to have the calendar associated with that account included in your GoogleApps@UIC calendar, log in to your other Google account and  "share" your other Google calendar with your GoogleApps@UIC calendar.

Closing a GoogleApps@UIC session is a two step process. You must do both.
