How do I send from my Gmail account using my Middlebury email address

Disclaimer: We provide these steps as a convenience to those who prefer to use Gmail as their email interface.  If your MIIS email password expires, or if you change it – you are responsible for updating your Gmail account with your new credentials.  ITS Helpdesk supports Microsoft Office 365 for its users and it’s expected that those choosing to use Gmail or another service will be responsible for maintaining authentication to that service.

That being said…

  1. Log in to your gmail account:
