Although Google asks for your “Email”, the system cannot support the use of your as a username. Instead, use your individualized (e.g. in the example below) and your IdentiKey password. Once you are in the system you can use your preferred email address, usually (e.g. in the example below) to share resources.

*Note: If you have separate Google Account logged in, you may need to click the Add Account button, in order to sign in with your account.

Switch to New Gmail

Google recently redesigned the Gmail interface. To enable New Gmail:

  • Login to the Gmail web client
  • Click the settings gear icon in the top right hand corner of the window
  • Select Try the new University of Colorado Boulder Mail

Your inbox will reload with the new interface. To reverse the change, use the same process, then select Go back to classic University of Colorado Boulder Mail.

Forwarding Your Mail with Gmail

You are encouraged to use the campus-provided Gmail service, but if you prefer to use a different email service, you should change your email delivery location using CU Boulder Identity Manager. If you wish to store your email in your CU Boulder Gmail account, but also forward it to another location you should make sure that your email delivery location is set to (CU Boulder Gmail) inside CU Boulder Identity Manager and add a forward location within Gmail.

If you want to consolidate a personal Gmail account with your CU Boulder Gmail account, you may use Google's Mail Fetcher tool. The email client configuration instructions below can be used to help you to manually move messages from one Gmail account to another.
