About half of Swatties forward their mail to GMail– you, too, can become one of them! Just follow these three easy steps, and you’re on your way to e-mails grouped by conversations, nifty filters, and a pretty sweet searching tool (no, Google doesn’t pay me, but I’m definitely thinking it should).
1) Go to: https://secure.swarthmore.edu/its/account_tools/accounts.htm
2) Click ‘Email Preferences’
3) Click ‘Forwarding’
And you’re on your way!
