Due to changes coming to Google storage by the end of 2022, all Google at IU My Drive accounts currently below 4 GB of total storage will be set to a 5 GB limit on Friday, August 26.

It’s important to read IU emails

Read your Exchange email. It’s IU’s official way of communicating with you. Exchange is also the best way for you to email fellow students, faculty, and staff.

By using Exchange email, your messages are much less likely to get caught in IU spam filters. If you forward your emails to other email platforms, your messages may get caught in spam filters.
