Email at Oberlin College is called OCMail and is powered by Google—which means it looks a lot like GMail. We recommend that you access your email through a web browser using OCMail's web interface. We also support users who want to access their email through Mac Mail or Thunderbird. Outlook can be configured for Oberlin College email access, but CIT does not support its use.
