DIT Student Email is hosted by Google as part of its G Suite.
Your student email address is [your student number]@mydit.ie
The G Suite also gives students access to a number of other applications including google calendar, drive, docs and many more. G Suite is a suite of web-based messaging and collaboration applications that Google hosts on their own servers. Google provides these applications as a "service," rather than as software to download and install. To access these applications, you simply use a web browser on a computer that's connected to the Internet.
Some of the key benefits of G Suite include
- Lots of storage -- You get a full 30GB of online storage for your email so you can archive all of your email online. You'll no longer need to worry about deleting messages or saving them in offline folders.
- Enhanced message organization and retrieval -- With Gmail, you'll spend less time managing folders and looking for messages. For example, you can add one or more tags, or "labels," to your messages to organize and store them more efficiently. And with the Google-powered search feature, you can find any message quickly and easily, whether it's in your Inbox or stored in your message archive.
- Easier calendar sharing -- Google Calendar lets you and your class mates quickly and easily share your calendars with each other and specify the details you want to show.
