And here we are...

YCrev - you solved my problem!!! I now I have a Virginia Gmail account thanks to you...now I just have to look back a few pages and figure out how to change/add an address that makes sense...our constant posting is getting to be annoying when I need to find earlier information!
First, of course, I have to log onto facebook and friend the only Harvard person!
Glad to be of service. Repost of email setup directions (with more details):
After logging into SIS (https://sisuva.admin.virginia.edu/psp/e ... PAPP_GUEST
) click the email button at the top. A page should come up saying you need set up your email account. After an appropriate click or two to the right links (I don't remember specifically, but it's fairly apparent), you should reach the computing quiz screen. You could also try to set up your email by searching for "UVA email" in Google and then, after clicking on the email accounts page, choose to setup your Gmail or MS Live email address (and it should hopefully prompt you to do the quiz then). Note: you have to choose Gmail or MS Live.
If it doesn't work the first time (you get an error message and you've sent in your first deposit), try another browser and make sure you clear your browser's cache before beginning the email setup process.Email Aliases:
You can sort-of change your email address by adding aliases to your account (after setup, you can go to a UVA, not Gmail, account managment page to add aliases). Unfortunately, you can only add aliases to your YOURCHOICE@email.virginia.edu
; you can't change or add aliases to INITIALSANDRANDOM@virginia.edu
. There doesn't appear to be any way to change your username (which is based off of that weird combination).Visit https://ams.itc.virginia.edu/cgi-bin/index.cgi
to add/manage aliases (UVa Email Address Management). You may need to log-in before it lets you go to the page. Click "Manage Aliases."
I went ahead and added aliases for my name for the email.virginia.edu domain. I also set up my Thunderbird for UVA Gmail email. This means you can have POP (or SMTP) UVA email which lets you use email clients and should allow you to look up your mail on your Crackberry (I don't have one, so I don't know for sure, but I assume it uses POP or SMTP).Changing your password
Go to: http://www.itc.virginia.edu/accounts/changelost.html
I changed my eservices password and email switchboard passwords and it seems to have taken care of everything NetBadge related that I've wanted to use. If you want to use a mail client for your Gmail/Live account, you need to make sure the UVA password and Gmail password match (if not, you can reset your gmail password through the Gmail settings page under change password; after logging out, log back in through a UVA link and it should prompt you for a new password).
