How to Connect Your URI Gmail Account to Another Email Account

Do you always forget to check your URI e-mail? Do you use another email account instead? Since many professors use Sakai messages/announcements to get in touch with their students, it is a good idea to check your e-mail daily. If you are not checking your URI e-mail you may miss important announcements regarding your class.

 

In this blog post, I am going to explain how to link your URI account to your preferred Gmail account. I am also going to explain how to forward your e-mails from your URI account to another e-mail account.

 

Linking two gmail accounts

Step 1: Log in to your primary Gmail account.

Step 2: Click the settings tab (the gear in the right-hand corner of the screen).

This is what your settings screen should look like.

 

Gmail1

Step 3: Select “Accounts and Import” from the top of the Settings bar

Step 4: Select “Add a POP3 account you own”

Step 5: Enter your URI e-mail in

Step 6: Select “Next” then enter in your URI e-mail password

Step 7: Select “Next”
Note you can choose different options (e.g. labeling) to cater to your own needs.

Now you will be able to access your URI e-mails from your primary g-mail account.

 

However, if you want to forward all of your URI e-mails to your primary g-mail account you can do it this way.

 

Forwarding URI e-mails to primary Gmail account

Step 3: Select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP”

 

Step 4: Select “Add a forwarding address” and input your URI e-mail

Step 5: You can decide whether you want the URI server to keep your e-mails or delete them.
Note: You can choose whether you forward ALL e-mails you have in the other account or all e-mails from the time you begin the forwarding.

Now you will be able to receive any URI e-mails from your primary Gmail account.
