All NC State students, faculty and staff are provided a Gmail account for email and calendaring as part of the Google Apps @ NC State suite of communication and collaboration applications hosted by Google. NC State Gmail accounts have 25Gb of mail storage and can send attachments up to 25MB in size. To send larger files, use NC State’s Velocity service.
Please remember: You can address emails to a person’s alias address (email@example.com), but alias addresses cannot be used to create Google calendar entries, share Google calendars, or share Google Docs. You must use a person’s NC State Gmail ID (firstname.lastname@example.org) for those functions.
Instructions are available for accessing your NC State Gmail through various mobile devices:
iOS devices (iPhone, iPad)
Android phones and tablets
Instructions for configuring other devices are available at the OIT Desktop & Mobile Phone Access Configuration for Gmail page.
