Gmail is not email at RISD. You can use it to communicate with your teachers, but it cannot send or
receive emails from other non-RISD gmails. No other schools, colleges, parents, jokes of the day, or
pretty much anyone, can send email to your Gmail account. If you try to send a message out, it will fail
silently (no bounce notification). Please do not share this “email” address with anyone asking for it, as it
doesn’t work that way.
