What is the new log on page?

A: There are a bunch of different addresses/ways that will take you to the log in page.
You can click the New Email button under For Staff on the wmtps.org homepage
You can go to http://mail.wmtps.org (no www) And click Sign In at the top right corner
You can go to http://mail.google.com/a/wmtps.org and just sign in
You can go to http://mail.google.com or http://www.gmail.com

What if I already had a google account using my wmtps.org account as a log on?

A: There is a process required to copy over information from your old account to your new account.  I have created a detailed tutorial which you can check out here.

What are Search Operators?

A: Search Operators are codes you can use to search for specific items in your email that are very useful.  For instance if I knew an attachment to an email I was looking for was named PARCC.xls I could search for filename:PARCC.xls  and it'll pull up that specific email.  You can also increase your search options by clicking the down arrow in the search bar to use more advanced search options.
A list of Search Operators can be found here
