The best way to access Gmail and Google Calendar is using Google's Chrome Web browser , external link . Other modern browsers including Firefox, Safari, and Internet Explorer will work almost as well.
If you prefer to use an email program or client such as Microsoft Outlook , Mozilla Thunderbird , Apple Mail , etc. or your mobile device , instead of a web browser for Gmail or Google Apps, you will first need to create a separate Google Apps password . We call this your "Google Token" and you will use this Google Token to set up Google Apps with your email clients as well as your mobile devices. Google Token should not be confused with your my.ryerson password that you would use to access your Gmail and Google Apps account through a web browser.
