Students are automatically assigned a University of Mississippi (UM) Gmail account.
Employees may sign up at this link. During the sign up process, a password reset will be required to meet Google's password requirements. For employees, UM Mail accounts will remain. A new UM Gmail account will be created for you.
It will be WebID@go.olemiss.edu.
Go to mail.go.olemiss.edu. After you log in, you will see links to other Google Apps for Education at the very top of the UM Gmail log in page. You can also use go.olemiss.edu where additional links are available for assistance.
Any student who has a UM WebID qualifies for a UM Gmail account.
The rules for deactivating accounts will remain the same. Students leaving the University will have at least 30 days to use their UM Gmail accounts.
For everyone, we recommend that you retain your personal UM Gmail/Hotmail/Yahoo Mail account for personal use. For correspondence with UM, we will store and use your UM Gmail account for students and the UM Mail (Exchange) account for faculty and staff.
There are two techniques for connecting email clients to UM Gmail: IMAP and POP. We recommend IMAP over a SSL (secure) connection. To view the steps to set up your client, please try this Google Support FAQ. If you need further assistance, please contact the IT Helpdesk.
Your UM Gmail password is the same as your WebID password. It will expire every 90 days.
In UM Gmail, email attachments are limited to 25 MB. Further, executable files (e.g., file with extension of .exe) cannot be attached in an email.
For a complete list of the UM Gmail attachment guidelines, please check this Google FAQ.
As part of Google Apps for Education, UM Gmail accounts offer unlimited combined storage for all documents. The storage is shared between Gmail, Google Drive, and Google Photos.
Please contact the IT Helpdesk at 662-915-5222 or email@example.com if you have any questions or problems with your new account.
