    I don't believe so unless they're only starting incomers on G-Mail...don't recall getting any information about that.

    Yes, the transition to GMail is being made this semester. There's no set timetable, but they hope to have it implemented before Spring Break arrives.

    About damn time, I say.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    I stand corrected. Sweet! I hate WebMail. I have yet to figure out why they don't just ask if you already have an e-mail address when you show up on campus and just give them that to put into a database.

    Smart idea, let someone who knows what they're doing handle it.

    Good move by ISU. Webmail was always such a pain.

    Re: State going to GMail this semester?

    good move, IMO.

    On another note, I graduated in May of 08, does anyone know how long I will have access to webmail? I thought it lasted through the next semester but I still have access. Not much traffic through it anymore, but it is always handy having a .edu address

    Re: State going to GMail this semester?

    ISU is doing Gmail.

    I'm sorry guys, but I am getting to the point where I am uncomfortable with the level of information that the Google people have. The non-expiring cookie, e-mail your history of queries and pages visited it creeps me out. I have Gmail as one of many e-mail accounts but I really think this is getting to the point where all of the eggs are in one basket, and it's ripe for abuse.

    Correct.

    Would you like to partner in starting a new company?

    You think Webmail is a pain? You should have tried Telnet.

    Unless they changed something they've had POP3 access and they even give you a free version of Eudora if you don't like using Outlook. Only time I ever use a webmail client is when I'm not on a PC I own and have POP3 setup on.
