Why Does the GSD Have Gmail and We Don’t?

By

At the beginning of this year, I accidentally visited www.mail.harvard.edu looking for my webmail. I was surprised to find a Harvard gmail applet there. Apparently gmail won’t work with any @fas email accounts; instead it requires the @mail.harvard.edu address. I googled it and found that, low and behold, this is a pilot program for the Graduate School of Design, of all people.

…What about the undergraduates, Harvard? Do we not merit any Gmail goodness?

Note from the future: this finally happened in August 2011, almost four years after this blog entry was posted. Sheesh.
