Grand Valley State University is switching all student email to Google Mail
It’s about darn time. But kudos to GVSU for finally doing it. As brad points out, we all suggested it ages ago. It was just a matter of time I suppose. The only downside is the email address changes from @student.gvsu.edu to @mail.gvsu.edu, but they say the @student address will work for a year after the switch.
I hosted mail for the domains on the-bob for a year or two and it was a horrible experience so when Google Apps opened up, I shoved everybody over there and things couldn’t be better.
Ever notice when you go to GMail from the button on the Google toolbar, it puts this “source=navclient-ff” in the URL? I decided to change my bookmark that had that in there to “source=yomama”. Hopefully some Google engineer trolling their statistics data will find it and chuckle.
