I have some questions about the way Google Apps interoperates with MSU. I
and don't see answers to these questions.
The one I have an immediate business need to answer is 3. The rest are just
me wondering how this interoperates.
1. I have a "personal" Gmail account which I don't want to associate
with MSU in any way. When I log into googleapps.msu.edu I am told "you are
already logged in as [personal Gmail], would you like to log into MSU Google
Apps with this account?" I always say No, and log in as my Netid in order
to keep these separate.
1a. What would happen if I logged into googleapps.msu.edu with
my personal account once by accident? Would it forever associate that
account with MSU? Would it blend my personal docs with my work docs? Is
1b. Would this legally associate my personal matters with MSU?
For example, if I were FoIA'd at work, would I have to turn over my personal
1c. What other consequences of this am I not thinking of?
2. Do Community IDs get Google Apps accounts?
3. Can someone without a NetID or Community ID of any kind (no ID at
MSU) collaborate with MSU employees through MSU Google Apps by just creating
(or using an existing) Google ID?
Thank you all for your time.
