Tommies pass on Gmail, at least for now

Chris Gregg, director of information resources and technology at the University of St. Thomas, tells TommieMedia one reason the university has decided not to switch campus e-mail to Gmail anytime soon:

“At the end of the day students still need someone they can call. It’s not like you’re going to call Google for mail support, so we like to think that we’re providing a little higher quality of control and support over any issues or problems we might encounter in serving and delivering email.”

The University of Minnesota made its switch last fall, but since then has suffered a glitch or two.
