I already have a Gmail account. Why do I need another one?

The Google Apps at York service has a number of benefits either unavailable, or only at an additional cost, to those that are using personal gmail accounts. These include no advertisements, and unlimited storage for email and documents.

Also, your @my.yorku.ca or @mail.yorku.ca account is your University student email account through which the University will communicate with you. University professors, teaching assistants, administrators and other students will easily recognize this email address.
