MSRI now makes use of GMAIL mail services. You can access GMAIL at https://mail.google.com where they have an excellent web client. You must have cookies and SSL enabled on your web browser to log in. You can find the latest settings for your local email client there. You can also setup your account to forward your MSRI email to another email account. In no way are you required to have or make use of a MSRI email account, but if you do want one please contact the IT department in room 214 second floor and we will set one up for you.
