Tips on Getting Started
Your password will be your Windows domain password in the department. This password can be reset at https://auth02.cs.stonybrook.edu:10443/react/
Students: If you have never logged in the Windows domain (same as Graduate Windows Lab, Building Classrooms, Podium workstations, and Transaction Lab), then your initial password was mailed to you at the beginning of the semester.
Faculty: Login information will be the same as it was for Exchange
You can simply access your email using the Gmail Web Interface by going to www.gmail.com.
All your emails to the username [at] cs.sunysb.edu and username [at] cs.stonybrook.edu addresses will be forwarded to Google Apps.
Emails detected as SPAM will be directly put into the SPAM folder in your mailbox (accessible via Web interface, IMAP, or Outlook).
Users have plenty of storage on through the Google Apps Service (30GB combined for Google Mail and Google Drive) and do not need to worry about deleting their emails. Gmail provides ‘archiving’ by default which allows you to remove messages from your inbox but keep them stored in the cloud for search and retrieval at a later time.
Your existing emails will automatically be moved to Google Apps. Contacts and Calendars will also migrate however due to a difference in storage and formatting they may require manual manipulation to appear the way they did under the Exchange system.
Special care needs to be especially taken when it comes to reoccurring events as their migration poses more possibilities for mismatching data.
