Email Addresses

Email addresses

Our @blagss.org email addresses are gmail accounts. You can access them through the gmail website, an email application or by forwarding all mail to one or more other addresses.

The first time you use your account it is best to use the gmail website. This will allow Google to ask you any questions they need to set up your account.

How to access using the gmail website.

Visit mail.google.com and login using your full BLAGSS email address (including @blagss.org).

How to access using your email application, phone or tablet.

See the instructions on the Google website for computers and laptops or for phones and tablets.

If there are multiple people sharing the address choose the IMAP option so everyone receives all emails. You may find new emails are already marked as read if another coordinator has seen them first.

How to forward emails to another address.

Login to the gmail website as above. Click the cog icon in the top right of the window and choose settings. Go to the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab. Click the "Add a forwarding address" button and follow the instructions.

Recovery information

When you sign in on a new computer, Google may need to confirm your identity by sending you a text message or email. You will need to tell Google your phone number and email address so it can do this. If two people share the same BLAGSS email address, then put in the phone number for one person, and the email address for the other.

To set your recovery information

  1. Login using the gmail website, mail.google.com.
  2. Click the round icon in the top right corner of the page.
  3. A panel should pop up showing your BLAGSS email address. Click "Manage your Google Account".
  4. On the left, choose "Security".
  5. Look for the "Ways that we can verify that it's you" section. You can add your phone and/or email address here.

Forgotten Password

If you have forgotten your email password you may be able to choose a new password yourself. This will be faster than asking the webmaster for help.

If multiple sports reps access the account then ask one of the other reps if they can tell you the password. If you reset the password then they will need to know the new password to login.

To reset your password, visit the Gmail website at https://mail.google.com/ and try to log in with your email address, e.g. sport@blagss.org

Click next and you'll be asked for your password. Click the "Forgot password?" link below the password box. You'll be asked for a piece of information to help verify your identity. If you can't provide it or it doesn't work, click the link that appears in the bottom left (where the "Forgot Password?" link was) and you'll be offered a different way of resetting your password.

Eventually you'll see a screen "Contact your domain admin for help.". If you get to this stage, email webmaster@blagss.org and we will reset your password for you.
