OCMail (Oberlin college e-mail) is Oberlin College's e-mail service and is provided by Google Apps for Education. OCMail replaced ObieMail! in 2008. All new incoming freshmen for the 2008-2008 school year will only have OCMail accounts, and the rest of the college community will be invited to opt-in to the new system on July 7th, 2008. The entire campus community will be transitioned to OCMail by the start of fall semester 2008.
OCMail uses the same interface as GMail, with a few aesthetic modifications. The biggest features include using a highly increased quota limit over that of ObieMail, Google search to find key words in e-mail messages and headers, the ability to label messages and add multiple labels per message and Google's high quality spam blocker.
I really love the new interface. I use GMail most of the time, so changing from the awful ObieMail interface to this one made me really happy. --Anonymous, 1 June 2008
Using OCMail with Apple Mail or Thunderbird is pretty quirky--but I love the new web interface. --Anonymous, 3 June 2008
