If you are new to Gordon and have not previously set up an email account, you will need to log into your new email account through the web access before connecting to it through an email client or mobile device. The web address for accessing your email online is http://mail.gordon.edu.
Please note, your Windows Live ID is your full Gordon email address. Please do not use Safari the first time you sign into your account as many users have reported errors when they first setup their account. Once you log in the first time, Safari should work.
If you use Outlook, Entourage or a "smart" phone to connect to your email account, or if you wish to forward your Gordon account to another email, please follow the instructions below. Please note, Web Access (http://mail.gordon.edu) is the only supported method for Alumni to check their Gordon email account. Other options are provided below for faculty/staff and current students, and should work fine for alumni, but are not supported by CTS.

To configure your Smart Phone using Active Sync you need to find the active sync application and configure a new account. This can be different on each phone. You should only need to type in your email address and password and tell the phone to find the settings automatically. Please contact CTS for assistance.
Please note: Other ways of accessing your Live@EDU account from what is listed above are not supported by CTS, but are provided as a courtesy through this link to Microsoft's help pages.
