Move to Google Mail

Opt-In Period for Students

All student ONID mailboxes have now been moved to Google Apps for OSU. Login now to Google Mail. Students still have an ONID email address, but now have a bigger mailbox with anytime, anywhere access through Google's mobile apps.

All email sent to your ONID email addresses - your @onid.oregonstate.edu and your @onid.orst.edu addresses - will be delivered via Google Apps for OSU, and you may use your Google account for ONID email. You will NOT be getting a gmail.com email address. By default, the email you send in Google Mail will be sent from your @onid.oregonstate.edu address.

If you haven't done so already, you may configure the Gmail app on your mobile device to receive your ONID email on the go.

Opt-In Period for Employees and Non-Student Users

Due to legal restrictions, employees' old ONID email will not be moved over to Google Mail. If you wish to begin using Google for ONID email delivery, only new ONID email messages will be sent and received via Google Mail at Google Apps for OSU. Older messages will still need to be accessed via the mailbox you currently use.

How to Opt In

  • Following the opt in, all email sent to your ONID email address - your @onid.oregonstate.edu and your @onid.orst.edu addresses - will be delivered via Google Apps for OSU, and you may use your Google account for ONID email. You will NOT be getting a gmail.com email address.
  • If at any point you decide to forward your ONID email to another email address, you will need to login to Google and set your forwarding address there.

A reminder, this migration is only for ONID email. Exchange-hosted mailboxes for faculty and staff will not be migrated. Exchange mailboxes are generally associated with @oregonstate.edu email addresses.
