If you have a personal Google account that is using your firstname.lastname@example.org address as the account name, an account conflict will be created when Miami adds the @muohio.edu domain alias to our Google Apps domain.
A conflicting account overview is documented on Google’s support site. This is scheduled to happen 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 28.
The conflict resolution process will start the next time you log in to your personal Google account using your @muohio.edu account. Google will guide you through the process of renaming your personal Google account and if you wish, will even help you move data from your personal Google account to your domain account. IT services recommends that you do not move your personal Google data.
When there are conflicting Google accounts, you can choose to:
1. Create a gmail.com account for your personal Google account
2. Provide a different email address for your personal Google account, such as @yahoo.com.
3. Temporarily log in using a temporary address @gtempaccount.com
If you do not rename your personal Google account that is conflicting (choice 1 or 2), Google will automatically rename your account for you.
