Instructions for Texas A&M Gmail Account Deletion Candidates

Document ID 708


When students leave the University, it is customary that their Texas A&M Gmail accounts expire after a certain grace period.

  • Undergraduate Students: 2 Years
  • Graduate and International Students: 3 Years



If you have been notified that all or part of your Texas A&M Gmail account services are candidates for deletion, you may need to modify your email forwarding options, archive old email, or obtain a new email address. 


Changing Email Forwarding

If you are also an employee of the university, you may still have access to your email address even after your Texas A&M Gmail account is deleted. If this is the case, you'll need to update your forwarding settings for that address to forward to a different account. These settings can be updates on the Email Settings tab of the Aggie Account Gateway.


Archiving Old Email

If you still have access to your Texas A&M Gmail inbox, you can archive the emails stored there. You have several options for doing so:

  • If you have just a few messages to keep and you have an email address active through an online service (like a personal Gmail or Yahoo!), you may forward these messages by hand.

  • If you would like to download all of your messages to your computer and access them with an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird, you may setup a POP account to move your messages from the server and store them locally.
    : In this case, you need to setup the account using POP.
