SMU going Google

The SMU iT Department is continuing the process of the university “Going Google.” All employees and students have Google accounts created, and several employee areas of the university have been migrated to using GoogleApps exclusively for e-mail and other features of GoogleApps.

Undergraduate students will begin having new e-mails delivered to their SMU GoogleApps account based on the following schedule:

Oct. 18 — credited seniors and “super” seniors
Nov. 1 — credited juniors
Nov. 8 — credited sophomores
Nov. 15 — all other undergraduate students

SGPP student schedule has yet to be officially determined.
Once e-mail delivery is switched over to Google you can move your e-mails from Office-Logic (WebMail) to your GoogleApps account.

For instructions, go to

Be on the lookout for further notices during the next few weeks.

The current WebMail system, Office Logic Interchange, currently does not have an end- of-life date set. E-mails, for students, will still be available on the Office Logic system unless moved to Google by the student him/herself. The Office Logic system will still be syncing passwords for all users when Changing SMU Passwords in WebTools.

HelpDesk and iT staff appreciate everyone’s patience during the changeover to GoogleApps.
