Google Apps: Gmail

A basic guide to using Google Apps at Butler

Gmail is not BUmail

Gmail and BUmail are not the same thing. Although your Butler email and password can get you logged into the Butler Google Apps, at this time your Butler email cannot be imported into Gmail. In fact, Gmail has been disabled and cannot be accessed when you are logged into Butler Google Apps. To use Gmail, you will have to use your personal Google account.
