There are three different categories of contacts within Gmail:
Imported personal contacts from Groupwise to
Google Apps or other contacts you have added directly into the Contacts
manager. Use your Contacts Manager to access all of these contacts
and add new contacts and contact groups. You can look up a contact to
addresses and personal profile information, as well as quickly list all
email conversations you've had with the contact.
The email addresses of everyone in EISD—similar to the
Global Address Book you used in Groupwise. When you compose
message or schedule a meeting, use either auto-complete
or the contacts
picker to use these addresses.
Note: District Groups are not included in the shared corporate contacts list. However, after you send a message to a group, it appears in your All
Contacts list in Google Contacts and the address will "auto-complete" when you start typing it. You can
find a list of your organization’s groups in the Groups directory: At the top of
your Gmail or other Google service window, click Groups, click Browse
- District Groups: A group
is like a mailing list: It contains the email addresses of its
individual members, but also has its own address. This Groups are managed by a designated person at each campus.
District Email Groups vs. Personal Contact Groups: You might be wondering how Google groups differ from the contact groups you can create in your My Contacts list in Google Contacts (click Contacts in Gmail). The primary difference is that a Google group has its own email address,
so it can be shared in our Groups directory and others can send
messages to it. Your contact groups, on the other hand, are for your
personal use, to make it easy to add a list of addresses to your email
messages and meeting invitations. They don't have their own email
address, so no one else can send messages to them.
