New, enhanced student email system: UAnetID@zips.uakron.edu
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
Beginning this Fall, The University of Akron will use Google’s Gmail for its student email system. Gmail provides a variety of features and benefits that will dramatically improve our email service.

Students will have a new email address using the format UAnetID@zips.uakron.edu. For example, zippy@uakron.edu will become zippy@zips.uakron.edu. Faculty and staff will continue to use the current email system.

The plan is to complete the transition to the new system by the end of September. The University will automatically transfer current mail and address book information to the new email account. For a period of time, mail sent to the old email address will automatically be forwarded to the new address. Gmail also provides the ability to forward mail to another address.

The new student email system has a variety of features and benefits, including:
• “Email for life”: Students will retain their email accounts as they become alumni
• No ads for active students
• A secure, innovative web-based email system with a huge storage capacity (currently 7 GB and growing), hosted on highly available hardware
• Support for mobile devices as well as POP and IMAP clients
• An excellent search function
• Very effective spam and virus filtering
• The ability to easily manage contacts and group mailing lists
• Google Calendar: a shareable calendar for meetings and events
• Google Talk: an instant messaging program that includes voice chat functions
• Google Docs: a web-based document repository with collaborative editing capabilities for word processing, spreadsheets, and presentation documents

The Zip Support Center will remain the primary contact point for assistance when answers can’t be found on the Gmail help pages.

If you have questions about the new system or the conversion process, contact the Zip Support Center at support@uakron.edu, 330-972-6888.
