The Office of Smith IT is pleased to announce that Smoogle has now launched for our Graduate Students. Smoogle is a suite of online applications, comprising of email, calendar, contacts, documents, websites, groups and more. The new incoming class of Fall 2012 will all be given Smoogle accounts and our existing Graduate Students will be migrated from the Lotus-based Smith mail system in Fall 2012. However our existing students can migrate ahead of schedule by creating their Smoogle accounts, and we will begin forwarding your Smith mail to your Smoogle account as well as converting your existing messages, calendar events and contacts from your Lotus-based Smith mailbox to your new Smoogle account..

To get started existing grad studentsĀ log inĀ at smoogle.rhsmith.umd.edu/GiveMeSmoogle and click the Create My Account button and we’ll take care of the rest. While we set up forwarding and convert your data, go to the Smoogle homepage at smoogle.rhsmith.umd.edu and find out all about the new services. You’ll be pleased to find that when logging in to Smoogle through your browser you can now login with your University Directory ID and password. (If you want to access your Smoogle account with a smartphone app or another email client such as Outlook or Thunderbird then you can quickly set up a Smoogle/Google password in a few seconds).

We are very excited to be bringing these services to our community and highly recommend finding out more about them from the Smoogle homepage.
