Starting the week of November 12, UNCG Gmail users still using the old Gmail (or “Classic” Gmail) were automatically switched to new Gmail by Google.

This change began in summer 2018 when new Gmail was released and UNCG users were given the choice to opt in to the new Gmail experience (see ITS News article). At that time, Google announced that Classic Gmail would eventually be retired.

Since that announcement, users of Classic Gmail received notices of the upcoming change and the need to switch to the new Gmail.






During this time, users could opt to “revert to old Gmail.” Now that the interim grace period has expired, all UNCG users will use the new Gmail.
