About UARK Gmail
Your UARK Gmail address is email@example.com. You also have access to Google Calendar, Drive, and Talk. While Google continues to refine its products to ensure full ADA compliance, however, students cannot be required to use these features.
Your email quota is 25 GB, and the attached file size limit is 20 MB.
Be aware, to log out of UARK Gmail, you must quit your browser.
UARK Gmail cannot be bookmarked from the login screen. Use http://email.uark.edu to create a UARK Gmail bookmark. Once the bookmark has been created, go to Organize Bookmarks or Favorites in your browser and change Address/URL to http://email.uark.edu.
The UA Directory address book is not currently available in UARK Gmail. To search for university email addresses, go to the UA Directory in your web browser.
You can set up your UARK Gmail mailbox in a desktop email application or on a mobile device. However, to do so, you must first create a Mobile/IMAP password for UARK Gmail in Password Manager. To keep your UARK password secure, this password cannot be the same as your regular UARK password used to access your web-based UARK Gmail, Blackboard, UA Secure wireless, and other university services.
