It appears that Google's privacy policies as they apply to the handling of mail content in Google Apps for Education may have changed since HSU signed up with Google in 2010. We are keeping an eye on ongoing court cases around this issue and will communicate further to campus if the outcome of these cases or any further information from Google warrants such action. In the meantime, you can read more about the issue at the following links:
Google provides an application called Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook to enable you to use Outlook to access your Google email, contact lists, and calendar.
Accessibility and Google Apps became an issue recently when complaints of discrimination were filed against New York University and Northwestern University. The complaints charged that the schools’ Google Apps implementations were not fully compatible with text-to-speech conversion technology, thus discriminating against students who are blind.
If you're using an IMAP client like Mac Mail to manage your email, you must also install Google's Advanced IMAP Controls Lab. It enables you to choose which GMail labels show up in your mail client and prevents multiple copies of the same email from being downloaded.
Unlike many email clients, which show different messages with the same subject line in chronological order as they come in, Gmail groups all such messages together in a "conversation view". This can make it easier to organize and keep track of email threads, as well as present a tidier inbox display, However, if you really don't like it, you can switch back to the more traditional view. Instructions for how to do this are provided below.
You can also learn more about this and other Gmail configuration topics in our "First Things to Change" video tutorial.
