The Virginia Conference provides every active clergy person in the conference an e-mail address ending in @vaumc.org, an address which will remain with the person throughout his or her ministry in the conference. The e-mail addresses will be provided through Google Apps.
The accounts are on Google Servers that make them available on multiple Internet-connected devices (PC, tablet, cell phone, etc.) with synchronization for calendar and e-mail across those devices. In addition, these assigned e-mail addresses will be able to connect to Microsoft Office (Versions 2003, 2007, 2010 and 2013) with synchronization on both e-mail and calendar.
Inactive retired clergy will not automatically receive an e-mail address, but those who want to opt in to the system can request an e-mail address.
After you receive notification of your new e-mail address, you will be able to log in to your new Google account.
The Conference Email runs on Google Servers.
