Accessing WhitMail is as easy as visiting the WhitMail log-in page and entering your Whitman username and password.
Prior to beginning this process:
Donwnload and install the Google Apps Sync for Microsoft Outlook (GASMO). This utility can be downloaded from https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gappssync Once downloaded, run the file googleappsyncsetup.exe, it will connect to the Internet and begin its download and install. When completed, you will need to sign into the Google Apps page with your Whitman College email address:
Once you have signed in, you will be directed to the following page wherein GASMO will request the following permissions:
Scroll to the bottom of this page and click "Accept". WCTS has vetted these permissions with the Google Apps for Education team. Once you have clicked accept, you should receive the following message: " Authorization has been granted successfully. Please switch to your application.". At this point, you should see a blinking icon on your taskbar:
Maximize this window and choose "Create profile". You should then receive the following window and can safely start Outlook.
You will probably want to deselect the screen that shows the Outlook sync when Outlook starts up.
Once the procedure is complete, upon startup Outlook will prompt you to choose a profile:
If you are setting up GASMO prior to your migration and still want to access Zimbra, do not choose a default profile - this can be changed once your migration has been completed and you no longer desire access to Zimbra. If your migration is complete and you will only be accessing this profile, click "Options" and put a check in the box "Set as default profile".
