Google Apps Frequently Asked Questions
Does my Google password expire?
No, your SSD Google Apps account password does not have a timed
expiration period, although we do recommend changing it periodically for
security. Because the accounts are separate, changing your SSD Google
Apps account password will NOT affect your SSD network password and vice
What if I already have a personal Gmail account?
No problem! Creating a SSD Google Apps for Education account will not affect your existing personal Google or Gmail account. Your Google Apps account for SSD provides the benefits of using Gmail and other Google tools in an ad-free environment.
If you wish, you can forward mail between your SSD Gmail account and other email accounts you may have.
How do I reset my password?
That's easy. Simply let the Technology department know that you need a
password reset. If you have access to another email you can send a
request to firstname.lastname@example.org or let a staff member know and they
can make the request.
