Adding the account to Gmail
Gmail allows you to read and send messages form other mail accounts. To do so, access your mail account and go to Settings -> Accounts.
In the option "Recover other account's mail", select "Add a mail account". In the new window that will appear, write your student direction with the following data:
The other three options:
Select “Add an account”. Gmail will give you the option of sending messages with this direction, so that you can answer using your student's account and not you personal Gmail.
Select “Yes” and specify the name you wish.
Gmail will ask for verification that you have access to this account and will send you a message to the student's direction to check it.
Select “Send a verification”, introduce the conifrmation code that you have received and select “Verify”.
From this moment you will receive the messages from your student account to your Gmail, and this will be visible in the account settings at Settings > Accounts. From there you will be able to edit the account, delete it... You can also select to answer authomatically the messages with the direction where it has been redirectioned.
