Attention Faculty, Staff and Students
STATE INTERNET CONNECTION DOWN -- INBOUND EMAIL WILL BE "DOWN" UNTIL OUR STATE CONNECTION IS BACK ONLINE
The state is working on the issue to get it resolved.
- Our connection to the state Internet is DOWN;
- The "DNS" server that tells the world to send mail to Google is on the STATE network;
- Therefore, we can't get mail from the outside world.
- You should check your mail at http://gmail.sdale.org
- New mail will no longer be delivered to your WorldClient mailbox
- Your old mail will be available at the archive site -- http://archive.sdale.org -- until it is 365 days old.

SDALE Email Goes Google Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Windows XP & GMail Problems?Wednesday February 27, 2013
Windows XP works just fine with GMail and the rest of Google Apps.
Internet Explorer on Windows XP does not.
If you are using Windows XP, you can either:
- Install Google Chrome from http://chrome.google.com
- Install the current version of Firefox, Safari or Opera
- Make things "better" by adding the Google Chrome Frame to Internet Explorer on WIndows XP: http://www.google.com/chromeframe
You don't have to make Google Chrome your default web browser. And you may still be able to use Internet Explorer to get to part (or all) of Google Apps on Windows XP, but it's no longer supported.
Monday, January 21, 2013 -- EMAIL STATUS: Check both inboxes
Mail that comes from the outside world, or that is sent vial Gmail, always arrives at Google first, and Google knows to deliver it to both places.
If a message is sent via WorldClient, though, our local server occasionally notices that it still has a mailbox for firstname.lastname@example.org, and chooses not to send the message on to Google.
Everything will be fine when everyone switches to use GMail instead of running both a local servers and a Google Apps Domain.
SDALE GMail Information Page
We've started a new SDALE GMail Information Page!
