We have completed our e-mail migration from Exchange to Google Gmail. The Gmail link is operational only on the district webpage under Staff Resources and then you can select E-mail. You can also open a new tab in the Chrome browser and click on the GMail icon to get to a login screen.
Please start using your Gmail account right away.
Here are a few things to remember regarding the transition:
All email, contacts, and calendars, were migrated from the old Microsoft Exchange system (@mers.k12.nj.us) to the new system (@mersnj.us).
Any email sent from outside our mail systems, will be re-routed to your new @mersnj.us account.
Any mail from Outlook sent on a computer inside the district going to a @mers.k12.nj.us address will only be delivered to the old email system. It will not be re-routed and may not be read as people will not be checking their old email box.
Any email sent from your new email box (@mersnj.us) and going to a @mers.k12.nj.us address will be lost and not delivered. You will notreceive an error message.
If you did not sync your e-mail password by going into your Outlook account and changing your password, you will not be able to log into your Gmail.
The School webpages still link to the Exchange/Outlook login, so that you can sync your password.
All staff members can also access their Exchange/Outlook e-mail by pasting the following URL into your browser:
Refer to Stephanie Walden's "Sync or You're Sunk" e-mail for directions on syncing your password.

Check your Spam folder in Gmail for any mersnj.us messages that might land in there. Until the system gets more established, it is catching some legitimate mersnj.us messages as spam.
