Google's Gmail application has some powerful features that probably weren't available in your old mail program, while a few things might work differently.

more than email

Inbox space for everything, and no ads

Google Apps offers up to 30GB of storage per user, powerful spam filtering and a 99.9% uptime SLA. All hosted by Google - there's no cost, and no ads for students, faculty or staff.

Work fast, save time

Gmail is designed to make everyone more productive. Up to 30GB of storage means no need to delete anything, powerful search means everything is in each reach, and labels and filters help your users stay organized. Gmail is securely powered by the web, so students and faculty can be productive at home, on the road, or on their mobile devices.

Connect with people, according to your rules

The inbox isn't just about messages, it's about people too. Text, Voice, and Video chat means that students and teachers can see who is online and connect instantly. Don't want your students using chat? Want to limit who can send emails to whom? It's all in the administrator's control.

Use the email address that matches your school's name and web address: You can also pick your own colors and logos to suit your institution.

Space for everything and no ads

Google Apps for Education comes with up to 30GB of email storage for every user. And students and faculty will not see adverts. Not one.

Designed for Security and Reliability

Gmail is designed for security and reliability with features like two-step authentication, attachment viewing in the browser, encrypted connections to Google's servers, simultaneous replicated storage for your email, built-in disaster recovery, spam filtering and sender authentication.

Email on the go

Gmail works natively on popular mobile phones such as Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone and can send and receive email from any device with a web browser.

Offline Support

The Offline Google Mail app for Chrome lets users read and write email without an internet connection. Drafted messages are sent next time there is an Internet connection. Get your day started on the train before you even arrive in school.
