Accessing Emerson Services Overseas

You may find that some Emerson services (such as Gmail and other G Suite applications) are unavailable in certain regions of the world. In these cases, Emerson recommends several options:

Using An Email Client

If you are unable to connect to Emerson's Gmail via the web (gmail.emerson.edu), try an email client such as Thunderbird or Apple Mail. It could be that only the web mail service is unavailable, in which case a client would allow you to connect to email. Here is an article about setting up an email client.

Using a VPN

In other cases or to access other G Suite apps, a VPN service may allow you to connect.

Some popular free/low cost VPN options are:

If you are faculty or staff, you are also welcome to use Emerson's VPN.

Please note that some countries legally prohibit the use of VPN services, and in these circumstances, Emerson users must obey local law and not use this option.

Set Up Email Forward

If you are currently able to access your email and worried about losing access while overseas, you can setup an email forward to a personal email address and then turn it off when you return from those areas.

Here is information on setting up an email forward.
