What is Google Apps at MC?

Now you can have Google-powered email, calendars, document sharing, and IM, all from your @mc.edu account.

Gmail

Keep your MC email address, but use Google’s advanced email interface – without ads. Comes with a powerful spam filter and gigabytes of storage (so you may never have to delete a message again).

Talk

IM with friends and classmates, or make free voice calls to anyone else with Google Talk, anywhere in the world.

Start Page

Access your Google Apps at your MC account from a single page that you can customize to give you simultaneous access to email, calendars, to-do lists, weather forecasts, movies times – a host of useful information and tools.

Calendar

Organize your life – keep a calendar for yourself, share calendars with your friends, and subscribe to public calendars to stay on top of events on campus.

Docs

Create and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online, and download them to your favorite desktop applications. Great for collaborative projects, in and out of class.

...and more

As Google develops new tools, MC and Google will collaborate to bring them to you.

Where can I go for more info?

What about the campus address book?

Your Gmail account will have a global address book of all other students that you will not see listed under your Contacts. When you compose a new message, you can search for a fellow student by typing Last Name, First Name. If you are looking for a Faculty or Staff person, you will need to use the online address book to look up email accounts. http://www.mc.edu/search

What if I graduated and my account was up for deletion?

An email was sent to recent graduates with instructions on how to create an email account on the new Mississippi College alumni email system called ChoctawMail. To sign up for ChoctawMail, click hereNote: The deadline to transfer mail from your MCmail account to your new ChoctawMail account is 3/1/2010.

Policies

  • MCmail, powered by Google, is governed under Mississippi Colleges Acceptable Use Policy. 
  • As a security measure, Google restricts the sending and receiving of executable(.exe) files in any email.   You can send and receive zipped attachments, as long as they don't contain executable files.  Messages sent to your MCmail account with such attachments will bounce back to the sender.  This cannot be modified by the MCnet Support staff.
  • Google has set a 20mb size on all incoming and outgoing messages.  This cannot be modified by the MCnet Support staff.
  • If you request an account change due to marriage or divorce, your current MCmail account and all of its contents will be deleted before the new account is created.  Google does not have an account change utility at this time, so deleting is the only option.  We can change the name as it appears on your existing account, but cannot change the actual account name(email address).  [Example:  Jane Doe married John Green.  Her email address is JDoe@mc.edu and the name on her account is Jane Doe.  We can change the name on the account to be Jane Green and keep the email address JDoe@mc.edu.  If she wanted the JDoe@mc.edu to change, we would have to delete the JDoe@mc.edu account and create a new account for her.]
