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.
Unless you use Microsoft Outlook for mail merge or functionality that's only available in Outlook, we recommend you use Google Apps for your email. Because it's on the web and not on your local computer, it's one less program to back up and troubleshoot if something goes wrong. Plus, it has several useful features Outlook does not have, such as online chat and the ability to retract a message if you hit Send by mistake.
Class and teaching schedules are available in your Google calendar, and are created directly from the Account Center to save you entering all your classes into the calendar yourself.
In GMail, click on the Calendar tab. If you're a student or instructor, you'll see either "Class Schedule" (students) or "Teaching Schedule (faculty)" in the list of calendars on the left side of the screen.
We recommend that everyone (Windows, Mac and Linux users) use the “Google Apps Web Client” to enjoy the best email experience. You’ll be able to use the same interface whether you are on or off campus, your email and contacts will look the same no matter where you are, and your calendar will appear in the same application as your email.
Every email user should be constantly on guard against the threat of malware and take personal responsibility for ensuring that individual actions do not compromise the valuable resources of others. Maintain a healthy suspicion with regard to email and confirm the reliability of all attachments before opening them, even if the message is - or appears to be - from someone you know.
In addition to your email@example.com email address (your preferred email address), you can also use firstname.lastname@example.org; this is known as your formal email alias and is assigned automatically for faculty and staff. All emails sent to your formal email alias will automatically be redirected to your preferred email address so that all your mail is delivered to a single email inbox.
All students, faculty and staff are provided an email account on the local campus server for the entire time they are associated with HSU. The name of the email server is webmail. Additional email server account information can be found at Central Systems Account & Activation.

Please note: As of February 22, 2011, incoming mail for the domain humboldt.edu will now go directly to Google's Mail servers, and will bypass our Barracuda Spam filters. Spam filtering/flagging will therefore be handled by Google. You can still access the Barracuda Spam filters (for older mail that got quarantined).

Real-time Black Lists (RBLs) are lists of IP addresses known to regularly send spam. Several such lists are maintained by different organizations concerned about the proliferation of spam. Internet Service Providers make use of these lists in order to prevent spam from known sources from reaching their customers, and the license fees they pay for the use of the lists pays for the ongoing research needed to keep the lists updated.
