Move ONID Email to Google Apps for OSU
Opt-In Period for Students
Students are encouraged to migrate their ONID mailbox to Google. When you move your ONID email to Google Apps for OSU, you'll still have an ONID email address, and you'll get a bigger mailbox with anytime, anywhere access through Google's mobile apps.
During the opt-in period, which runs through late December, students may choose to keep using the OSU-hosted ONID webmail or switch to Google Mail. For those who do choose to migrate ONID email to Google, it will generally take from a few minutes to an hour to move all messages in their ONID mailbox to Google Mail.
Following the opt in, 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.
After you opt in, 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
- Through December you can choose when to opt in period. You can migrate anytime between mid-August and late December (exact end date TBA).
- 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.
The opt-in period for ONID email migration ends in December. All student ONID mailboxes not already transitioned will move to Google Apps for OSU between December 26-31, 2013.
