I'm clicking the 'activate your UVa gmail account,' trying to take the responsible computing tutorial, but am sent to a page where I'm told I either sent my deposit within the last 72 hours (I sent it in a while back) or that I have already completed the tutorial and can access my account (that I haven't).
I've been able to create a 'deliverable address' for my @virginia.edu account (my primary alias) but I'm not getting anything in my deliverable account when I send test emails.
Is there an UVa gmail interface I should be seeing or is all @virginia.edu email supposed to be sent to your 'deliverable account' (say your yahoo or gmail account)?
Anyone have similar issues? Help please! Thank you
Try signing into gmail directly with your UVA login ID (XXXXX@virginia.edu
) and leave the password field blank
. It will redirect you to the SIS login page. If you can login there then you are set (login with your UVA ID without the @virginia.edu and your NetBadge password).
Alternatively, just use this link: http://www.mail.virginia.edu
and login with your ID and NetBadge password and it'll redirect to google if you are good to go (otherwise it'll redirect to some other page to set up your account).
If your name isn't showing up in a directory search on the uva homepage you can't activate your email yet.
Regarding the deliverable address, once in the UVA gmail interface from the second paragraph above, I used gmail's forwarding instead of UVA's deliverable addresses.
If you're still having problems after trying the above, I would contact IT.
