UCO Student Email is powered by Google and the official communications messaging system. Central has partnered with Google to offer an email service that includes email processing, spam filtering, and storage while still using the UCO.edu domain.
The new Google-powered student email system allows us to increase capacity (larger mailbox sizes, larger attachment sizes) and provide a superior web-based mail system.
No. All email addresses, follow the email@example.com pattern; just as they do now.
You can call the UCO Service Desk at 405-974-2255 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The web-based user interface will have the same look and feel of Google's Gmail. This includes automatically combining messages into "conversations." Google provides more information in their conversations support guide.
Google also offers a feature they call "labels." Labels are similar to folders except that you can apply multiple labels to a conversation. For more information, please review Google's labels support guide.
All UCO Student email users will have a email@example.com address. While you can forward either your personal Gmail account to your UCO address or vice versa, we recommend keeping personal and university-related emails separate.
All filters are processed for each message. So, if you have two different filters that match a message, both filters will be processed unless one of the filters is set up to delete the message.
(You can also apply a label to a message you are reading by performing steps 2 and 3.)
Google's (including its email's) most salient feature is its fantastic searching ability. Google makes all of its components (email, calendar, etc.) searchable by the end-user. In order to deliver this feature, Google scans all email and calendar data and indexes the information to make it searchable by the end-user and only the end-user. During the searching and indexing, Google accumulates aggregate, non-personal information in order to provide better services.
Yes, and no.
No email should ever be considered private; however:
