At the request of Clemson University Student Government, we have partnered with Google to bring Google Apps for Education to students. Google Apps was rolled out on September 17, 2007 which allowed students to use Google’s web-based email offering, Google Mail, with their Clemson.edu email address.
Google Apps for Education accounts includes email, Google Talk, Google Docs and Spreadsheets, and a Calendar service for students and employees. Other services may be added in the future as they are available and appropriate.
As part of the Google arrangement, Clemson employees may also take advantage of Google Apps including Google Mail with their Clemson.edu email address. CCIT recommends and supports Outlook as the institution’s primary email service; but because no single email service is 100% reliable, you may want to add Google Mail as an alternate offsite email service.

If you want to forward your Clemson mail to GAE, go back to the Email Control Panel and check the box to deliver email to GAE.
If you want to use another mail client instead of the web-based GAE account, configure GAE mail for POP access, then configure your mail client to pop mail off of GAE.
