Welcome Lions to your new LeoMail 2.0 found in your myLEO homepage located at myLEO.tamu-commerce.edu.
We hope you take some time to look through your new student email. As a reminder, the new email is a gmail platform and share many features that a regular gmail account has.
In addition to email, you will have the ability to build your own contacts list and use the built in calendar for planning and organizing.
The most asked question has revolved around the ability to sync this email account with your mobile or smart phone device. The answer is yes. The Portal Implementation Team is working on getting both the email and your NEW myLEO account connected in an application that will be available in June. As a reminder the NEW myLEO portal will launch June 4, and you can check back and visit www.tamuc.edu/myLEO for up-to-date updates and articles, including Portal Perspectives by students, alumni and Portal Team members.
The next most asked questions are about the current @leo.tamu-commerce.edu inbox.
- What happens if someone emails my old address?
- How can I access my old emails?
For the first question, the Portal Implementation Team has turned on “Auto-Forward” from your old Inbox to your new LeoMail 2.0 inbox. This functionality will only be available until September 14, 2012. This will allow you enough time to change your point of contact to your new LeoMail 2.0 address.
The following will guide you on how to “Import” your old email into your new email inbox.
1. When you login this is what you will see for the time being.
Beneath your NEW LeoMail 2.0 link you have a quick link access to your old leo mail inbox.
After you have access your NEW LeoMail 2.0 you can now “Import” your old email with the POP function in your new email.
Go to your “Accounts” tab under “Settings”.
While here you will click on “Add a POP3 email account you own” at the bottom of this section.
In the dialog box you will enter your old email address and click “Next Step”.
The following credentials are required for you to successfully import your old email.
Username: flast# (first name initial, full last name, and any other number associated with your email address).
POP Server: leomail.tamu-commerce.edu
Check off the option “Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail.”
The other check box options are up to your discretion.
On the last step, it is advised to choose “No” since your old email will not be available after September 14. You will have time to change this setting if you choose “Yes.”
After finishing this sequence, your NEW inbox will take about 5 minutes to successfully pull all saved emails from your old inbox.
As a reminder, and new emails sent to your old inbox will automatically forward to your new LeoMail 2.0 inbox.
If you encounter issues while, or after, following these steps, or with your NEW email in general, please email them to myLEOportal@tamuc.edu.
We hope you enjoy your new email. Read up on the new articles this week for new insights on the new myLEO portal launching June 4th.
