Can I access this account from my personal Google account? No. You’ll need to log in at ocmail.oberlin.edu.
Will all my existing messages still be accessible? Yes. You’ll use a desktop e-mail application to drag & drop your message into the new OCMail system.
Can I still use a desktop client such as Thunderbird? Yes. The desktop clients CIT has supported in the past will still be supported (Thunderbird for Macintosh and Windows, Mail for Macintosh)
Can I still use local folders and have access to that mail? Yes. If you use a desktop client, you will still have access to local folders. You can still use local folders, but we recommend that you move that mail to the server as well.
