Google Apps Education Edition is the name that Google calls its email hosting for
educational organizations. It’s irrelevant with personal gmail.com account. In the
following paragraphs, I will simply call it Google or Google Apps.
Here are links to Google Apps features.Start Page http://gstart.csu.edu/
Email URL http://gmail.csu.edu/
Chat: Users download and install Google Talk.
We have configured single-sign-on for Google Apps. Your login username/password are
the same as your CSU email account. You will see OpenSSO login page. Unfortunately,
Google doesn't synchronize pop3, iMap, and smtp password with our authentication
server. After you login successfully, you will see a page asking you to choose password.
That’s password to use pop3, iMap, and smtp. You may see certificate security warning.
Please accept it. We will install official certificate ASAP.
During test period, to receive email at Google Apps, you need to forward your emails
to Google. The easiest way to setup forward is to do it via webmail. You can visit
CSU webmail at https://webmail.csu.edu/. Click on “Pref” after logged in. The fifth line from top is where you define email
forward. You should enter [your_user_name]@galias.csu.edu and check “Keep local copy”.
Click on “Save”, click on “Continue”, click on “Log out”.
Q: How do I access Google Apps using pop3?
A: After you login to gmail.csu.edu, click on Setting, which is on top-right of the
