Email Settings

Department Email

Each member has their own department email address.  You may access this email address as a standalone account, or you may have all emails to this address automatically forwarded to your existing personal address.

For example, lets say you’ve had the same gmail address for the last 10 years and don’t want to bother with checking another email address.  No problem, we can have all emails to your gvfrs.org email address automatically forwarded to your gmail account.  That way, you won’t need to check a second email address.

If you would like your department emails forwarded, just email lkerns@gvfrs.org with your department address and the email address you would like to receive department emails.

Still want to access your department account directly.  Use the instructions on this page to set up your client.

You may use one of these types of mail settings

  • POP3.  This downloads emails from the server to your email client and then removes them from the server. This is the faster setting, but the only copy of the emails you will have is the one on your client.
  • IMAP.  This keeps your client in sync with the server.  So you have two copies of all emails.  This is slower and uses up more space on the server.
