BABSON GMAIL

As a Babson alumnus/a, you may retain the email address you had as a student or create an email address using username@babson.edu.  All alumni email at the College is powered by Gmail.  Below are answers to frequently asked questions about Babson Gmail.

How do I access my Babson Gmail mailbox?

To open your Babson Gmail account, go to gmail.babson.edu and enter the username and password you utilize to login to the Alumni Directory.  Note that when you log in to the Babson Gmail mailbox for the first time, you will need to accept the Google Terms and Conditions.

What if I don't remember my username and password?

If you forgot your username or password, please use our username/password reset tool.

May I set up forwarding within my Gmail account?

By default, all emails sent to your Babson address will be delivered to your Babson Gmail mailbox.  You have the option to forward emails sent to your Babson address to an external address (e.g. Yahoo, Hotmail).  If you did not forward your email, all email sent to your Gmail email address will stay in your Inbox.  See Instructions for Forwarding Email within Gmail.

What if I already have a Gmail account?

Your personal Gmail account and the Babson Gmail mailbox are separate and unique from eachother.  The Babson Gmail mailbox will require a different login from your pre-existing personal Gmail account.  You may, however, forward your Babson Gmail to your personal (pre-existing) Gmail account.
