A: Yes! Students have access to some of the same Google Apps available to staff. Please see our comparison chart to see which apps are available to staff and students.
Q: How can I sort by date, sender, etc. in Mail?
A: If you have multiple pages of emails, mouse over the message count and it will give you options for newest first or oldest first. You can't sort messages by headings in your Inbox. However, you can use Google Mail search options to list messages in order according to search parameters and date. Click here for information about Advanced Search techniques in Google Mail.
Q: Why are all my emails grouped together?
A: Google mail groups all replies with their original message to create a conversation thread. This feature, called "Conversation View," keeps all correspondence together for easy access to the entire conversation so you don't have to wade through your inbox to access previous replies.
