For email accounts that end with @telus.net
Be aware that in the conversion process to Gmail you will need to know and keep track of:
- your current password with Telus for email and for your Telus account
- your new password with Gmail (you will be prompted to create one) WRITE it down immediately when you create it (so awkward when it is immediately forgotten!)
- any verification information that Telus has on file for your email account e.g if Telus has your cell phone number can you receive messages (SMS) on your cell phone. If you have no data plan for your cell phone make sure to remove this information from your Telus account before conversion occurs
Be aware that this has caused some difficulty for users, confusion and lost emails. This needs to be handled very carefully. Otherwise expect to spend many frustrating hours with Tech Support from Telus. Once set up is complete you can log into your Gmail account from any browser. Call me if you need help with this process or if you want to have it configured to work from your email client such as Outlook, Thunderbird etc.
