That’s it. You’ve just scheduled your UH email migration to Google@UH. When the migration has completed, you won’t have the ability to log into your UH email using UH Webmail or your email program. Initially view your email in Google@UH by going to: http://www.hawaii.edu/google/
To access your email, click on the red Gmail link.
You will be asked to log in with your UH username and password.

Step 1 What is your Server Type
The majority of the UHMC campus use Thunderbird mail client with the IMAP mail server type and may continue with Step 2 after Step 1. If your Thunderbird is configured with the POP3 Mail server type, get the information from Step 1 and let me know. To check how you are configured:
Step 2 Enabling IMAP
Step 3 Select your IMAP mail client
The last step should bring you to the page below. Select your mail client and follow the instructions. If you wish to keep using Thunderbird, go to Step 4
Step 4 Thunderbird 3 Set up
If your mail server type was IMAP and you were using Thunderbird, when you convert to Google@UH, you’ll be using the same address book and Local Folders.
When you feel confident that your Google@UH account setup is successful, then it’s time to delete the old mail.hawaii.edu account (the account without the word “Gmail”in the title) from Thunderbird using Account Actions in Account Settings.
