Some other things you should know:
Alumni Affairs has taken advantage of Google's Apps for Education in order to offer this service. In many ways, an alumni e-mail account is similar to an ordinary Gmail account, with two key differences:
- No advertising!
- Instead of having your address end in @gmail.com, you'll have @alumni.utoronto.ca.
This is an opt-in service to alumni who wish to retain a university e-mail connection. Over 2,000 graduates are already using it regularly. Your e-mail will be stored on Google-owned servers, and kept private from the University of Toronto and Google. Your inbox can be accessed by you either from a desktop e-mail client like Outlook, or via Google's webmail service from any internet-enabled computer, or from your mobile device, such as an iPhone or BlackBerry.
