Connect to Email

Microsoft's Office365 provides a powerful email package enabling users to access mail, calendar, contacts, and to-do lists all from Outlook, the Web or your smartphone/tablet devices.

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 user name is your Firstname.Lastname. 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 Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, a smart phone, or a tablet 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.
